As per the sources close to the club, Manchester United are keen to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger and are willing to promise him a regular starting place at Old Trafford. 

The 30-year old has been hampered by injuries and eventually lost his first team place at Bayern Munich last season. Bayern Munich currently have the likes of Philip Lahm, Thiago Alacantra, Xabi Alonso and Javi Martinez in the midfield, Bastian is facing tough competition to get first team action.

The Red Devils are keen to sign proven winners across Europe and Bastian is very much in their interest as the deal is expected to fall in place in the coming days. The German has only one year left in his contract with his boyhood club Bayern and have put new contract talks on hold as he is yet to decide his future.

Manchester United have promised regular starting position to lure the player away from Allianz Arena this summer. Bastian also shares a special bond with ex-boss Louis van Gaal which might prove crucial for the transfer, if it happens.

The Red Devils are ready to offer £7.5million to secure the transfer, but the German is yet to decide on his future and the would definitely be flattered and tempted by the promise made by the club.
