Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern hope this is a turning point in this transfer saga after the Express revealed that Louis van Gaal has promised to Sebastian Schweinsteiger that he will have regular first-team football.
The reason why the World Cup winner is moving away from his beloved Bayern Munich is because of the fact that he will struggle for game time.
But with the Red Devils closing in on signing the 30-year-old they understand that it is important that they clarify the fact he will play a huge role next season.
With the reports linking Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin with a move to Old Trafford worth £25m, punters questioned whether or not Schweinsteiger would make the first team.
But this statement of intent shows that he will be heavily involved and it would be a good platform for him to impress the German national team, as he is dying to secure a place in Germany’s Euro 2016 squad.
