News broke late last week that Manchester United were close to completing the signing of Southampton star Morgan Schneiderlin. Today, Sky have suspended betting with all signs now pointing to an already done deal.
Silly season is currently in full throttle but one story that does not seem to be in the slightest bit silly is Schneiderlin to Manchester United.
Given their dependency on Michael Carrick, the French midfielder is exactly what The Red Devils need and at £25m it seems United have finally done a deal that doesn’t vastly over value their acquisition.
Cough… Luke Shaw… Cough… £30 million… Cough cough.
The BBC had already reported that the deal would be wrapped up by Wednesday, which is usually good enough for us but now that Sky have suspended betting, we think it’s safe to say you can stick a fork in this one.
Manchester United have all but completed this deal and it’s just a matter of time before the news is officially confirmed.
