Manchester 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.
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!
