I see Man Utd have agreed a deal to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich subject to his medical.

 

 

Is this part of a deal for Di Maria to go in the opposite direction? Muller and Robben were being talked about as possible makeweights.

No idea, but van Gaal has probably targeted Schweinsteiger because he knows the player very well and knows what he would add to his team. He only had another season on his Bayern contract as well, so Man Utd might have got a pretty good deal on this one.

Southampton have an excellent Academy and have been a conveyor belt of talent. They spend SOME money but never spunk their load on players. Look at the team they COULD have had with some of the guys that have come through their Academy and team in recent years : Walcott, Bale, Shaw, Ramsay, Schneiderlein, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Lallana - that is 7 players who have went onto bigger teams and done fairly well (Schneiderlein is likely to end up at Man U).

 

You missed out Wayne Bridge (maybe you didn't rate him?), although he didn't come all the way up through the Southampton academy, I think he was signed at about the age of 16.

 

There's also the young lad Ward-Prowse who's another real Southampton academy product having came all the up the youth levels at Southampton along with Luke Shaw. Ward-Prowse could maybe be one of Southampton's next big money sales.

Fantastic deals for Man Utd to get Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin. That just sets them level with the other big 3. Still think they need a centre half.

Don't get the Sterling one. Extremely over priced and QPR must be laughing at getting 9m of this amount. City need to get Pogba in else as it stands they look like the 4th best team.

 

Chelsea linked with Pedro today, that would be a quality signing and make them favourites again.
