Manchester United are set to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger for around £10 million, according to Metro. The German World Cup winner who is in his final year of his contract at Bayern has been strongly linked with the Red Devils this summer. The 30-year-old who has previously played down speculation of a move is now reportedly set to join Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford. The Express reported last week that Bayern manager Per Guardiola said that the decision rests solely with Germany's 30-year-old World Cup winner, who turns 31 next month.

Guardiola said: "Of course I'm planning to work with Basti next season. But he must decide what he does alone. I've told him, 'The future depends on you'."
