Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are crossing their fingers in the hope that they can get this one over the line after the Daily Mirror revealed they are lining up a £7.5m bid for Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The German legend is in the final year of his contract at the Allianz Arena and Louis van Gaal is confident he can persuade the 30-year-old to finish his career in Manchester.
The former Dutch coach has given the responsibility to their top negotiator, Ed Woodward.
Van Gaal previously coached the midfielder when he was in charge of Bayern Munich in 2009 and 2011 and he will hope that this past relationship will help to lure him to Old Trafford.
His presence is needed at the Theatre of Dreams as they look to not only have a successful season in the league but also in Europe.
