German newspaper Bild has reported that former Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger may have costed Manchester United a mere fee of £6.3 million and not the staggering fee for a 31-year-old of £15 million.

But, Bild has reported that Bayern may have been a little mischievous in handling the PR and have shown an inflated figure to please the fans, having let go one of their star players. Schweinsteiger was a fan favourite among the Bavarians. The new Manchester United number 31 came through the youth ranks at Bayern, with United manager Louis van Gaal being very influential in the player’s career during Van Gaal’s time at Bayern Munich.
