A select round-up of the latest news relating to Manchester United…
The German international is approaching the final year of his contract at Bayern Munich and it is being claimed that United manager Louis van Gaal is very keen to sign him, with Ed Woodward tasked with making the deal happen this summer.
Schweinsteiger has racked up 500 appearances for Bayern, scoring 68 goals and providing 101 assists in that time. He has also been capped 111 times for his country and would bring considerable experience to United’s squad were he to arrive.
The report claims that while United are tracking the versatile defender, his girlfriend could throw a spanner in the works after allegedly being miserable in his first spell in England when Boateng played for Manchester City.
The report claims Boateng is seen as a potential alternative if United fail to sign Valencia centre-back Nicolas Otamendi this summer.
The report claims De Gea has told some of the players he wants to move to the Bernabeu prior to the new campaign, something that would be a huge blow to United given his importance to the side and blossoming talent.
