Old Trafford side to snap up two top-class midfielders.
Louis van Gaal is set to welcome in the midfield pair ahead of the Premier League side’s pre-season tour of the United States with deals in place to sign the Bayern Munich and Southampton stars.
The Daily Mirror claim that the move to bring in 30-year-old German international Schweinsteiger will cost £14m whilst French battler Schneiderlin will complete a £24m move to Man United, deals that greatly improve Louis van Gaal’s midfield complement.
The duo are set to take part in light-training today and will be joined by Italian right-back Matteo Darmian and Dutch winger Memphis Depay, who have both already seen their transfers to the club officially announced.
Van Gaal has done well to push on with his summer transfer business early, no doubt mindful that it takes time for players to bed-in, and the Dutch manager is surely keen for his new additions to gel with their new Man United team-mates ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
The prospective capture of Schweinsteiger will prove a real coup, the World Cup winner is rightly considered one of the best midfielders of his generation, with Louis van Gaal set to reunite with his former Allianz Arena charge.
Schweinsteiger has spent his entire professional career at Bayern Munich and a move away from the Bavarian side is sure to be a wrench for the experienced campaigner.

Schneiderlin has proven to be an excellent servant for Southampton, the former Strasbourg man helping the south-coast side climb from League One to the top-half of the Premier League.
The 25-year-old had been keen to secure a move to a side that could fulfil his Champions League ambitions [via the Guardian] and having completed his medical at Man United over the weekend [via the BBC], it appears that ambition is set to be realised.
Man United successfully secured a return to the Champions League for the coming campaign and van Gaal will hope his side can make a real impact in major competitions after a couple of lean campaigns.
