Manchester United will not be too disappointed that they received no transfer fee for Bastian Schweinsteiger's move to the MLS.
The World Cup winner and former German international announced his move to Chicago Fire on his Twitter account on the 21st of March, but that move was subject to him acquiring a visa and passing a medical. All of these formalities have been completed by the central midfielder at this point, and he will arrive at O'Hare Airport today to fanfare. From his former club Manchester United's point of view, the deal has worked out well too. Both club and player feared that there would be little interest in Schweini by the summer transfer window and so by letting him go now, Man Utd saved £6 million plus in wages as per his contract which ran until 2018, which would have been a huge figure for a player exiled from the first team squad by manager Jose Mourinho.
