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.

Southampton's fantastic start to the season hit a bump today as defending champs Manchester City showed themselves to be a better side in a 0-3 loss for the Saints.

Thanks to a horrific decision by the referee early on, the Saints were given some momentum and though they started slow, looked to be on even terms as the two sides went to halftime 0-0. Morgan Schneiderlin was removed to begin the 2nd frame due to a thigh muscle issue and perhaps his loss made the difference as City began to dominate and went on to score three times and hand Southampton their first home loss of the season. Schneiderlin is crucial to their success, there is a reason he wasn't a part of the summer's massive fire sale, and the Saints will hope it is nothing serious. With a quick midweek turnaround, ROnald Koeman may have decided to protect his key player in the hopes that he will be ready in a few days.

Following a summer of discontent Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin may secretly be breathing a huge sigh of relief as chairman Ralph Krueger quashed any proposed move to Tottenham by announcing the Frenchman "is not for sale."

Fast forward three months and the Saints are sitting pretty in second spot while Spurs are languishing in the bottom half following a series of hugely disappointing defeats. However rather than sulk on the sidelines Schneiderlin has proved his worth with a string of excellent performances having already scored more goals this year [3] than in 5 of his previous 6 seasons. So the news that the midfielder is a doubt for this weekend is worrying having tweaked his groin against Albania for France. A scan confirmed a minor tear which forced his early return. The player will undergo further tests and treatment before the trip to Villa Park. England under-19 international Harrison Reed could step-up.

Morgan Schneiderlin has appealed to Southampton fans after scoring a brace against West Ham.

Schneiderlin's brace was enough for the Saints to win 3-1 over West Ham. The midfielder has come out to say after the match that he has always respected the Saints' fans even thought he had requested to be sold to a bigger team over the summer. Schneiderlin also added that his future is now at Southampton and he will do his best to continue pleasing the fans. Despite the two goals today, the midfielder is not an usual threat and is not the best of fantasy performers. Avoid him for now.

Morgan Schneiderlin may not feature in Southampton's week one match as there are continuous transfers rumors about him.

Schneiderlin has insisted that he and Southampton have a verbal agreement in place that will allow him to move to Tottenham. If that is indeed the case, he is not likely to take part in the Saints' match this weekend. Schneiderlin's fantasy value is relative low regardless of what team he plays for so we would recommend you look elsewhere for fantasy points.
