The Southampton star said last week (via Mail Sport) that he would only leave the St Mary’s for a club playing in the Champions League next season and it now appears Louis van Gaal is close to completing a deal for the Frenchman.
Schneiderlin’s reputation has risen considerably over the last 12 months and he played a pivotal role in the Saints’ magnificent season which ended with a top-seven finish in the Premier League and Europa League football next year.
United and Arsenal fans have responded on Twitter and it’s safe to say both sets of supporters have contrasting views on the speculation:
Schneiderlin would be a good addition.

If we don’t get Schneiderlin and he goes to United. I’m writing a strongly worded email to Arsenal.

Canal + are saying that Morgan Schneiderlin is “very close” to a move to Manchester United. Shame to miss him.

Quite a few Morgan Schneiderlin to #MUFC rumors going around. Not sure if true or not, but I hope they are. Exactly the player we need.

If Man Utd can grab M.Schneiderlin from under the noses of Arsenal, then they will be getting one of the best in the EPL in that position.
