Sources claim that Schneiderlin has completed medical

16672573530_aa13d936fa_oWithin the last few hours sources within the Manchester Evening News have claimed that Morgan Schneiderlin has completed his medical today and will travel to the US tomorrow for United’s pre season tour.

Both Rob Dawson and Stuart Mathieson have claimed that the French midfielder completed a medical earlier today in secret and is due to be part of Van Gaal’s pre season plans. Neither journalist are yet to reveal the fee that was agreed, but many speculate it being around 25 million.

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, but the two journalists appear to have been briefed and are currently only awaiting confirmation on the fee and wages.

Many were unsure United would continue to pursue Southampton’s defensive midfielder after the club secured the signature of Bastian Schweinsteiger on Saturday, but it looks like Van Gaal wants both midfielders amongst the squad. Clearly the United boss is looking for strength in depth with Champions league football this season.
