And with one swipe of Sir Woodward’s trusted sword, the most heroic German to have set his foot on a modern pitch was conquered. Conquered from his homeland to join the English in what could be the greatest move in this summer’s battles.
For those who have been living under a rock, Manchester United did something spectacular by signing Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich. This has got to be the transfer of the window so far and surely catapults United to Premier League contenders, they still have a few more aces up the sleeve though.
Bastian might solve their midfield problems for now, but there are a few other issues which need to be resolved, we trust Sir Ed Woodward has a plan for that as well. We are trying to sort that out and look at three players who could be joining Manchester United in the coming weeks.
1. Jasper Cillessen
With the transfer merry go around about in full swing, Manchester United could sign the Dutch goalkeeper from Ajax. Iker Casillas is bound to leave Real Madrid for Porto which could pave the way for David de Gea to join United.
Having Victor Valdes as a keeper might not be the best way to start the season and Manchester United are expected to sign the 26-year-old who has played under Louis Van Gaal, as part of the Dutch team in the 2014 World Cup.
