According to reports, Manchester United of England are finally set to announce the signing of France International, Morgan Schneiderlin from fellow league side, Southampton, for a reported fee of £25 million.
After series of talks and negotiations between the two sides in the past few months, reports say an agreement was reached recently. The player, having also allegedly agreed personal terms and passed a medical at Old Trafford recently, is said to be excited at the prospect of playing Champions’ league football at Manchester United, and is eager to establish himself as a key member of United manager Louis van Gaal’s squad, next season.
With this development, It is believed that United would announce his arrival anytime soon. It also implies that instead of resuming pre-season with the Saints’ in preparation for Europa league engagements, the versatile France International would instead join up with Manchester United, which would see him fulfill his long-time dream of playing in the UEFA champions league.
This will certainly be hard to take for Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, who is also a long-time admirer of the player, and was at some point also keen on acquiring his services. However, as it stands, Louis van Gaal’s United have certainly won the race to sign the player; and will in time, announce his signing.
