In the last hour, Manchester United have confirmed that a deal has been agreed to bring Bastian Schweinsteiger to the club, “subject to a medical and personal terms.”
Here’s a sample of the replies to the official announcement on Twitter:
I think it’s fair to say United fans are pretty happy with this signing, which makes the German captain the first senior player from that nation to sign for the club. Here’s some more reaction to the deal on Twitter…
Schweinsteiger is a magnificent footballer. Always had the look of a WW1 flying ace. Presumably the Red Baron.

After going years without signing a CM, United have signed Fellaini, Blind, Herrera & now Schweinsteiger. Fergie must be seething!

Schweinsteiger’s reported fee is £7M or £8M. Woodward is doing incredibly well this summer, not overpaying for anyone. #LovingIt
