Old Trafford side chase Saints battler.
Man United are readying a summer bid for Southampton battler Morgan Schneiderlin according to the Sunday Mirror.
The 24 year old has been in fine form this season and is seen by David Moyes as a viable holding midfielder signing, in view of Marouane Fellaini’s failure to adjust to the position since moving to Old Trafford.
Frenchman Schneiderlin is now eligible to play for England and is a player who has excelled in the Premier League having helped the Saints come up from League One back to the top tier.
St Mary’s boss Mauricio Pochettino may struggle to keep hold of his top talents this summer, such have been their splendid efforts in 2013/14, and the likes of Luke Shaw, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez will all be summer transfer targets.
Southampton will demand at least £15m for Schneiderlin, who joined the club from Strasbourg in June 2008 and has made a total of 225 appearances for the south-coast side.
