Manchester United is delighted to announce that Morgan Schneiderlin has completed his transfer from Southampton. Morgan joins on a four-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.

Schneiderlin, 25, has made 253 appearances and scored 15 times for Southampton since his debut in 2008. The French international has made nine appearances for his country.

Morgan Schneiderlin said: "I am delighted to be a Manchester United player. Once I learned that United were interested in signing me, it was a very easy decision to make. I have enjoyed seven very happy years with Southampton and it’s a club that will always be in my heart. But the chance to be part of this squad to help this great club be successful was too good to miss.

"I’m excited to be starting that journey on our trip to the USA. I know what Manchester United means to fans all over the world and I’m looking forward to experiencing that."

Louis van Gaal said: "Morgan is a very talented player with great energy and ability. His skills will complement the players that we already have and I am very pleased that we have been able to complete this deal before the tour to the United States. That training camp will be very important in our preparations for the new season and gives Morgan and the other players a chance to show our fans what they can achieve together."

Important to note that the only game we lost in which Carrick started last season was at home to Southampton. Schneiderlin was maybe the man of the match too if I remember correctly. Southampton's dip in form last season seemed to coincide with Schneiderlin's absence too.

Great signing this. Hopefully this is the end of seeing Rooney in midfield.

Delighted with this. We have a lot of options in midfield now. Our defense will also benefit, a lot of times last season the defense was criticised however at times it was harsh criticism at times due to lack of protection from the midfield. That won't be an issue this season after thee latest signings.
