Guardian Journalist and knower of all things German football, Raphael Honigstein has said Schewinsteiger was never the man Manchester United were looking to sign.
Schweinsteiger is a mere side-show to Man Utd’s big push for Thomas Müller. Check @cfbayern for updates…

What a move this would be. It was originally brought up some four weeks ago but the trail appeared to go dead, however now things look to be picking up pace with reports a bid has been made.

The guys who are tweeting this are very reputable indeed. Honigstein is a well respected journalist who writes for the Guardian and someone who would be regarded as being ‘in the know’ on German transfer related news. Christian Falk meanwhile writes for SportsBild in German, a large newspaper. He’s also credited as being a great source for news, particularly Bayern Munich related stories.
Whether or not a deal gets done we’ll have to wait and see, but with Bayern signing Douglas Costa today, could that free up some room?
