Southampton are moving closer to a move for Jordy Clasie that has been widely rumored since Morgan Schneiderlin made his intention to leave this summer known.
Ronald Koeman has been linked to the Eredivisie star for a year or more with the knowledge that Morgan Schneiderlin's time at St. Mary's was short. With Schneiderlin now at Manchester United, the inevitable seems like it is coming to pass. The 24-year-old Clasie will join Memphis Depay and Georginio Wijnaldum as high profile imports from Holland's first tier. Clasie, like Schneiderlin, is a holding midfielder who is equally adept at covering the back four and igniting the attack with an incisive pass. It might take him a little time to adapt but expect the Saints to continue their recent tradition of playing the transfer market well and backfilling leaving stars with similar talent for less money.

Manchester United today confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin had signed a 4-year deal while an announcement quickly followed revealing that Bastian Schweinsteiger had also joined the club for the next 3-years.

The double signing was officially made public moments before United confirmed their US tour squad which included both players plus summer signings Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian. Schneiderlin ends a 7-year association with Southampton "He's a very talented player with great energy and ability. His skills will complement our players" said Louis van Gaal. Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons at Bayern and arrives with a wealth of domestic, European and international experience "Manchester United is the only club I would have left Munich for" confirmed the German captain at his press conference. If anyone did harbour any lingering doubts about Uniteds’ title credentials then this latest move represents a real statement of intent.

Manchester United have confirmed the move of Morgan Schneiderlin to the Old Trafford club from Southampton.

It has been a big few days for Manchester United with the arrivals of Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, and now Morgan Schneiderlin. With Manchester United supporters surely getting nervous about the number of departures from Old Trafford the boost in the form of big names will be welcomed. United had a gap at the base of their midfield last season when Michael Carrick wasn't available and they have doubled down on a solution with the twin arrivals of Schweinsteiger and Schneiderlin. One thing for sure is that United will have a strong option in the holding role each and every weekend.

Morgan Schneiderlin has reportedly signed for Manchester United today despite the arrival of Bastian Schweinsteiger making him seemingly redundant.

It's going to be a crowded central midfield at Old Trafford with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin joining Michael Carrick (when healthy) and Ander Herrera who came on strong at the end of last season. Unless Louis Van Gaal plans on moving Schweinsteiger back to his original wing position (unlikely) there is going to be an expensive central midfielder or two on the bench every week.

According to the Manchester Evening News, Manchester United have made an official bid for Morgan Schneiderlin with £20 million the mooted figure.

Earlier in the week Ronald Koeman was quoted as saying that no significant bids had been made for the France international. Apparently, the Red Devils decided it was time to change that and start the process of bringing the Saints holding midfielder to Old Trafford. While the final number may end up being closer to £25 million than £20 million, it seems only a matter of time until the deal is done. With Sami Khedira, Ilkay Gudnagon, and Geoffrey Kondogbia already off the market and Arsenal seemingly focused on William Carvalho if they bring in a new holding midfielder, the path seems pretty clear for United to get their man.

The rumor mill has Morgan Schneiderlin moving closer to a transfer from Southampton to Manchester United as the week draws to the close.

With a fee of between £20million (rising to £25) and a flat £24million mooted depending on the source, the tide appears to be shifting from Schneiderlin-to-Arsenal to Schneiderlin-to-United. Either club would do well to pick up the France international with United probably having a more acute need given Michael Carrick's age and injury issues last season. Arsenal have an ascending player in Francis Coquelin in the holding role and a variety of options to play next to Coquelin in the form of Cazorla, Ramsey, Wilshere, and Oxlade-Chamberlain. The question at Arsenal is what happens if Coquelin is injured/suspended? There isn't really a Plan B beyond Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini who both appear to be past their prime.

Morgan Schneiderlin would only leave Southampton for a team that plays in the Champions League.

This basically narrows down his suitors to Arsenal at the moment, as they are the only team rumored to be going after him that are in the Premier League and are playing Champions League football next season. Schneiderlin said he is happy in England and would like to remain there, and also mentioned he is happy to stay at Southampton if there isn't an acceptable offer for him from a big club. It sounds like Schneiderlin's future is undecided so keep an eye out for rumors this summer.

Morgan Schneiderlin will miss the last match of the season due to a knee problem.

Schneiderlin was considered questionable for the last match so he is obviously close to returning but won't be risked. Schneiderlin has been a big part of Southampton's success this season despite only playing in 26 Premier League matches. There are multiple rumors sending him to other clubs this summer though, so his fantasy value could be impacted in a major way depending on where he lands this summer. Keep an eye on his status through the transfer window.

Arsenal haven't made a bid yet but they have reportedly made official contact with Southampton about the France international midfielder.

Arsenal and Morgan Schneiderlin have been linked for more than a year and now come reports that indicate that Arsenal have made an official inquiry about the holding midfielder. Schneiderlin is out for the remainder of the season with a knee injury so there is no risk of disrupting his focus on the field with an official inquiry. Schneiderlin is likely to have multiple suitors this summer but Arsenal appear to be in the lead assuming the player stays in the Premier League.

Ronald Koeman has confirmed that the knee injury suffered by Morgan Schneiderlin during the final moments of the draw with Tottenham will keep the Frenchman out for up-to five weeks effectively ending his season.

Schneiderlin went for a scan on Tuesday and results have confirmed the midfielder tweaked ligaments and he will not feature in any of clubs four remaining games. Fortunately his loss will provide Victor Wanyama with an opportunity of a quick return after completing his 2-game suspension but Dusan Tadic won’t be considered due to a niggling groin problem. Jay Rodriguez returned to full training this week - first time in over a year - and Koeman is hopeful that the striker can still play a part this season. Southampton travel to Wearside this weekend knowing only 3-points will do if they hope to secure Europa League qualification.

Morgan Schneiderlin scored for Southampton but they couldn't get past Stoke City at the Britannia as they fell 2-1 to the home side.

With the loss, Southampton were effectively eliminated from contention for a Champions League place in the final standings. The lack of Champions League football for the Saints likely clinches the departure of goal-scorer Morgan Schneiderlin who has been linked with a big money move away from St. Mary's. Arsenal and Spurs have been linked most frequently with a suspicion that Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, and others outside the Premier League could also register interest before the summer is out.

Morgan Schneiderlin returned to training on Thursday and is probable to play against Liverpool this weekend.

Schneiderlin has been dealing with a few injuries as of late and is currently struggling with a groin problem but a full session of training is very optimistic for his fantasy owners. If Schneiderlin can't go, Victor Wanyama, Harrison Reed, and Steven Davis will likely feature in the Saints midfield. Due to the risk of Schneiderlin starting from the bench, we would be cautious with him this weekend.

Morgan Schneiderlin returned to the squad in week 23 but started on the bench as he was lacking fitness.

The midfielder is probably fit enough to earn a start or make a long appearance off the bench, although we wouldn't want to risk playing him in leagues where lineups lock at the first match kickoff. He is also not a great option in the Yahoo! game as he doesn't do enough to be a consistent fantasy threat. Victor Wanyama and Steven Davis are likely to miss out this week although they could face late fitness tests tomorrow.

Morgan Schneiderlin will miss two to three weeks with a hip injury.

Southampton struggled a bit during the holiday period when Schneiderlin missed time and it showed just how important he is to this squad. With him missing time and Jack Cork still injured, Harrison Reed is likely to step in. Reed showed he has a high potential in fantasy but is not reliable enough to be trusted at the moment. We can also see Dusan Tadic drop back into midfield with James Ward-Prowse and Eljero Elia starting on the wings.

Morgan Schneiderlin was sent off during Southampton's match against Chelsea for getting a second yellow card.

Schneiderlin brought down Cesc Fabregas on a breakaway towards the end of the match in what was a clear second yellow card. The midfielder will miss Southampton's next match, which is against Arsenal on New Year's Day. Victor Wanyama or Harrison Reed will likely replace him in the starting XI, but his energy and motor will be missed.
