Fans’ view: Who is Manchester United’s most important signing this summer?

by Tanveer Arayan

With the signings of Matteo Darmian, Memphis Depay, Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger, Manchester United fans are understandably excited for the new season.

The current line-up looks very strong but there is every chance it could get even stronger still, with reports linking Man United with a host of centre-backs, strikers and a certain Pedro Rodriguez from FC Barcelona.

In terms of building a team that is capable of competing on all fronts next season, Louis van Gaal has taken a big leap towards that with some fantastic signings but is there one player who fans feel is the stand-out new addition so far?

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on United’s most important signing this summer and who they think will have the biggest influence on the team.

Plenty of fans felt Morgan Schneiderlin was a top class signing but it is Bastian Schweinsteiger who most fans voted for.

You can certainly understand their argument. Schweinsteiger will bring experience to the team that no other player can; he has earned over 100 caps for Germany, scored 23 goals and played for Bayern Munich for 17 years.

He is now one of the most decorated players at the club and there couldn’t be a better player for everybody to look up to than Schweinsteiger.

It’s good to see Van Gaal has focused on areas where United lacked last season and so far the overhaul has been very successful. If the final few pictures of the jigsaw can be put into place, you’d have to consider it a failure if United weren’t competing on all fronts next year.

Who do you think is the most important signing so far this summer by Manchester United?
