The Schweinsteiger transfer to United comes as something of a surprise and will bring an end to over a decade of service to Bayern Munich where he has won the league title on eight occasions and the Champions League in 2013.
The 30-year-old is regarded as one of the best central midfielders in Europe and proved his class for the national team last summer as he helped them win the World Cup in Brazil.
Bayern are set to start the season without Schweinsteiger and two of his soon-to-be former teammates in Ribery and Holger Badstuber expressed their sadness at the news in the video clip below.
