Man United To Steal This Premier League French Midfield Star?
Louis Van Gaal, Diego Simeone, Carlo Ancelotti... whoever Man United convince to take the reins next, one thing's for sure - they'll certainly be given some hefty financial backing. £200m, to be exact.
The Old Trafford club's pursuit of Saints starlets Adam Lallana and Luke Shaw has been well-publicised - but it appears that another Morgan Schneiderlin-sized St Mary's player could well be winging his way to the north west.
Funnily enough, YES - it's Scrabble top score, Morgan Schneiderlin. The French holding midfielder was arguably his club's best player last season, and has been catching the eye this year, too. Although he has said that he doesn't want to leave Southampton, you get the impression that if one star exits, then it could cause a domino effect across the rest of their squad.
United have lacked bite in the middle all campaign, and the addition of the anchor would go a long way to shoring up the space in front of their ageing defence.
