Manchester United have been informed they can land Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger for a knockdown fee. The Daily Mail says United boss Louis van Gaal has dismissed Cesc Fabregas and Toni Kroos from the club's list of targets for this summer.
The Dutchman has, however, been linked with Bayern Munich talisman Schweinsteiger and the word out of Munich is that Pep Guardiola would be willing to listen to offers of £10million for the 29-year-old midfielder.
Schweinsteiger, whose name cropped up during David Moyes's tenure at United, is also interested in a new challenge.
The old regime had concerns about his fitness and value for money, given that he earns £8m a year but Van Gaal worked with the Germany star at Bayern and knows him better than most.
