Morgan Schneiderlin has been pictured training for Manchester United for the first time.

Morgan Schneiderlin has been photographed in training for Manchester United, and looks every part the dominant midfielder the team need.

The Frenchman signed for the Red Devils over the weekend after a race against time to get a deal done in time to fly out on the club's pre-season tour.

The former Southampton midfielder is now in the USA, and was unveiled at a press conference by manager Louis van Gaal along with fellow new boys Matteo Darmian and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Southampton have clinched a deal for Schneiderlin's replacement, having bought Jordy Clasie from Feyenoord, as reported by The BBC.

They have moved on and United themselves can look forward to a new era of a potentially dominant midfield, which they have missed for the best part of a decade.

The double signing of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin is genius because the former Bayern man will take the pressure off the Frenchman.

United fans could get their first look at the duo on Friday night if selected for the club's first pre-season game against Club America.
