He told the club’s official website, as reported by Goal: “I am delighted to be a Manchester United player”.

Schneiderlin has moved from fellow Premier League club Southampton for a fee in the region of £25m.

It appears those formalities have now been concluded as United announced on ManUtd.com a short time ago that Schneiderlin has joined the club on a four-year deal with the option to extend by a further year.

“His record speaks for itself; he has won every honour at club level and was a major part of the successful Germany World Cup-winning team last summer”.

Manchester United new signing Morgan Schneiderlin has revealed that he couldn’t refuse the Red Devils after he found out they were interested in his services. Rummenigge says Saturday July 11, 2015 “we tried to convince him to stay at Bayern Munich, but I have a bit of understanding for a player who has been 17 years at the club, that he wants to try something different”.

The experienced German midfielder has ended his 17-year association with Bayern Munich, reuniting with old boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. “That training camp will be very important in our preparations for the new season and gives Morgan and the other players a chance to show our fans what they can achieve together”. Where will Schweinsteiger fit in at Manchester United?

The arrivals of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin continue United’s bold buying spree in the close season following earlier deals for Dutch global Memphis Depay and Torino defender Matteo Darmian.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Bayern Munich, it has been an incredible journey and I didn’t take the decision to leave lightly”, said Schweinsteiger, who made over 500 apparances for Bayern since making his senior debut aged just 18.
