Luke Shaw persuaded Morgan Schneiderlin to join Manchester United

by Ben Topliss

Luke Shaw played a key role in persuading Morgan Schneiderlin to leave Southampton for Manchester United, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Schneiderlin officially completed his move to Man United on Monday and he will be part of the squad that flies out to the United States of America for the pre-season tour.

Former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino was interested in bringing Schneiderlin to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal were also said to be keen.

However, Shaw convinced his former Southampton teammate that United would be ‘the best club’ for him.

Shaw went through a tough campaign at Old Trafford last season having suffered from a number of injuries.

However, it is good to see he has maintained the right attitude. Schneiderlin will be a fantastic addition and one that will go a long way to making United a force at home and in Europe once again.

Coupled with the capture of Bayern Munich’s Bastian Schweinsteiger, United finally have some quality depth in midfield.
