Old Trafford Statues

Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger so what do their fans have to say about it?

Manchester United’s transfer window has been relatively quiet of late with only Memphis Depay arriving at Old Trafford thus far and that deal done before the previous campaign had even concluded.

Well it is not quiet anymore, with Louis van Gaal’s side agreeing a deal to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The news was announced on United’s official website on Saturday afternoon, with clarification that the 30-year-old was set to move to England after an agreement was reach between van Gaal’s side and Bayern.

The move is subject to a medical and personal terms being agreed but in truth it seems only a case of crossing the I’s and dotting the T’s considering both clubs have made it clear that a move has been agreed.

Schweinsteiger has been a one-club man up until now, with the midfielder featuring 500 times for them. And that is a good number to end on with the 111-capped international now heading to United for the next chapter of his career.

After the news we took to Twitter to see what United fans thought of the deal and you can read a selection of what we found below:
