Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is ready to move to Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says the 29-year-old Schweinsteiger is thought to be keen on joining his former boss Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.

It was Van Gaal who made Schweinsteiger switch from a winger to a defensive midfielder with huge success, and the Dutchman currently masterminding Holland's World Cup campaign in Brazil sees him as exactly what United need.

United hope to do business for £15million with Bayern.
