Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to the news that Bastian Schweinsteiger is on his way to Manchester United.
The 30-year-old has yet to agree personal terms and undergo a medical, but it seems that he will feature for the Red Devils next season.
You joking? losing your best player (De Gea) & now signing a player past his best I couldn't be happier! https://t.co/GtyAhanb0e— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) July 11, 2015
@Carra23 Or he could play with Herrera and be rotated with Carrick? Don't become a manager lad— King Louie (@RoyMufc_) July 11, 2015
Of course he can! But Carrick's stats last season showed how important he was to the team. https://t.co/nMUsrbKSo3— Jamie Carragher (@Carra23) July 11, 2015
While former Liverpool defender Carragher does have a valid concern about the German playing with Michael Carrick in midfield, United fans should still be optimistic about Schweinsteiger.
Although the 2014 World Cup winner has struggled with injuries of late, when fit he is a world-class midfielder.
The 2013 Champions League winner is an all-round midfielder who is as good defensively as he is when going on the attack.
United manager Louis van Gaal has worked with Schweinsteiger before, and the Dutchman will certainly find a way to play the German and Carrick together in midfield.
