Schneiderlin, not Schweini, will have biggest impact at Man Utd

There’s no doubt that Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has made some astute purchases in the summer transfer window but which of his new recruits will shine through?

We put two of United’s latest signings under the spotlight and asked you to choose whether Morgan Schneiderlin or Bastian Schweinsteiger will have the biggest impact at Old Trafford in the upcoming campaign ahead.

And the vast majority of you believe it’s the former who’s most likely to stand out in the Red Devils’ midfield with Schneiderlin scooping 62 per cent of the vote.

The £25m buy from Southampton may not have quite hit the heights of his decorated new teammate but that didn’t stop you from showing your support for the Frenchman.

For once Schweinsteiger will have to accept playing second fiddle having only managed to secure the remaining 38 per cent of votes.



But with a World Cup winners’ medal and eight Bundesliga titles already among his many achievements he may wish to settle the matter on the pitch.

Man United are 11/2 to deliver the Premier League title in 2015-16. And while it may be Schneiderlin who stands out, both members of this pretty formidable pairing could be celebrating together next spring.
