United To Break Bank For Schweinsteiger, Cavani

Manchester United is poised to burst into the transfer market with big-money swoops for Bastian Schweinsteiger and Edinson Cavani.

United manager Louis van Gaal is determined to be reunited with the player who he converted from a winger into a central midfielder during his time in charge at Bayern.

“If Schweinsteiger wants to stay here then that’s perfect. He’s a top player,” said Bayern boss Pep Guardiola. “While I am planning to work with Basti next season, Basti is the one who has to decide.

“He must decide what he does alone. I told him, the future depends on you.”

Schweinsteiger has spent his entire career with the German champions, winning eight Bundesliga titles, but fell out of favour last season and is open to the idea of a move to United.
