Went from £5m this morning to £15. Other reports are €13m. But who cares, anywhere within that price range is great. Apparently he was in his last year of his contract anyway. I feel kinda bad for Bayern fans though, he's played such a major role for such a long time that it must be hard to see him go.
Writing on his official Facebook page, Schweinsteiger said: “Dear Fans, after 17 incredible years at FC Bayern, 15 national titles, winning the historical triple and uncountable other highlights that I was fortunate enough to experience with my incredible team, all you exceptional fans and the co-workers at Säbener Straße and Allianz Arena, I have decided to take a new career step.
“This decision was very hard to make because you and FCB have, are and will always be an extremely important part of my life.
“Nevertheless, I would like to again gain experience at a new club. My destination is Manchester United. I hope you understand my decision. No one can take away the incredible journey we had together. #MiaSanMia
