Manchester United transfer news: United reportedly set to bid for Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger
Louis Van Gaal could link up with former player
Thursday 12 June 2014
Manchester United want to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger, according to reports.
The German international has been strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford amid rumours that his manager Pep Guardiola is ready to sell the midfielder.
Schweingster and new United boss Louis Van Gaal worked together previously when the Dutchman was in charge at Bayern Munich and it is believed that he is now keen on a reunion with his former charge.
According to some reports, United are prepared to offer up to £20m for the midfielder's services.
Schweinsteiger is thought to be high up Van Gaal's transfer hitlist after missing out on fellow Bayern Munich teammates Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller.
