Manchester United fans will be delighted with the reports of German media and Telegraph that the Red Devils have agreed a deal to sign 30 year old German midfield maestro Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich. The World Cup winning midfielder admitted earlier this week that he was flattered with the interest from the English giants.

Manchester United have been heavily linked with the 30 year old German International in recent weeks  as manager Louis Van Gaal is wants to sign world class players rather than young players as he is looking for instant impact and wants to challenge for the title. German media claims that Manchester United have agreed with the Bundesliga holders for a £14 million fee for the midfielder and Bastian has agreed a three year deal at Old Trafford.

The German midfielder has struggled with injuries in recent years and Bayern boss Pep Guardiola prefers Xabi Alonso to him in that role. The midfielder is happy with the prospect of regular first team football at Old Trafford.

Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal knows the player from earlier as he managed Schweinteiger during his time at the Allianz Arena and turned him into a world class midfielder. Van Gaal is therefore looking to bring his former disciple to Old Trafford to fill the void of Michael Carrick who struggles with injury in recent years and cannot offer his best due to his ageing legs at 33 now.

Schweinsteiger is a one of the most decorated players in history with 8 Bundesliga titles, 7 DFB Pokals, 2 DFB Liga-Pokals, 2 DFL Super Cups, 1 UEFA Champions League, 1 UEFA Super Cup and most recently the 2014 FIFA world Cup. After 2014 FIFA World Cup his club and International teammate Philipp Lahm retired from International Football and he was given the captain armband of the Deutschland and he will lead them in 2016 Euro Cup.

The arrival of Schweinsteiger will not only fix the midfield problems of Red Devils but also bring a highly experienced leader to Old Trafford. Bastian Schweinsteiger’s teammate Philipp Lahm told Goal.com yesterday that he does not want the midfielder to leave the club and said, “Of course I would regret him leaving”.
