Manchester United paid astonishing price for this star player

SchweinsteigerManchester United fans are clinking pints in celebration at the shock news on the Daily Mail that they signed Bastian Schweinsteiger for just £6.5m

The World Cup winner switched Munich for Manchester in a shock move this summer after it was believed Guardiola was prepared to sell the player due to his injury problems over the past years.

The fee was originally believed to be  around £15 million but new information coming out of the German midfielder’s previous club TSV 1860 Rosenheim reports it was significantly less than that. With them receiving a percentage amount as a sell on fee agreed when he moved to Bayern Munich, the true price was revealed to them as 9 million euros.
A few whispers have been in circulation round the Transfer Tavern that the fee was made to look bigger than it was to keep the Bayern Munich fans happy.
Many punters here in the Tavern believe there would have been outrage among the Bavarian fans if they were told they were losing their iconic midfielder for such a low price.
Manchester United fans in here cannot quite how their club managed pull off such a value for money deal for a player of Schweinsteiger’s experience and undoubted quality despite his age.
United fans. How happy are you with the signing of Schweinsteiger this summer especially now the true price has been revealed? Let us know below!
