Manchester United completed a hat-trick of transfers worth more than £50m in the space of three days. Italian defender Matteo Darmian signed a four year contract with the option of a fifth season, after completing his £12.5m move from Torino. Deals have been agreed for Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, and both underwent medical on Sunday. It’s only a matter of time, before the signings would be officially announced by the club.
Louis van Gaal sees Schneiderlin as a long term successor to Michael Carrick in United’s midfield. It is the signing of Schweinsteiger that might raise a few questions. The German skipper is a world class midfielder and he would bring proven quality and a wealth of experience to the side.
