Manchester United ‘already looking to replace Schweinsteiger with exciting midfield signing’

Red Devils considering January swoop for highly-rated midfielder.

Manchester United are being linked with a January move to sign highly-rated Bayer Leverkusen starlet Hakan Calhanoglu in a possible move to replace Bastian Schweinsteiger.

The Turkish international is a classy midfield playmaker known for his amazing ability at set-pieces and with long-range shots in general, having scored a collection of wondergoals in the Bundesliga.

Clubs like Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City have also shown an interest in the 21-year-old in the past, but it now looks like United are stepping up their interest, according to the Metro.

The Red Devils already have Schweinsteiger in that creative midfield role, but the experienced German international has been slow to get going at Old Trafford due to concerns over his fitness.
