Captain of the Red Devils Wayne Rooney has said that the arrival of Bastian Schweinsteiger has added class to the squad ahead of the new campaign.
United broke the bank again this window, bringing in Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Morgan Schneiderlin and the German midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The new devils have joined LVG’s men ahead of their pre-season tour in the USA and Rooney believes it would be an exciting experience for United.
“Bastian is a very experienced player who has won everything in the game and it’s great that he has chosen to join us and left a team like Bayern Munich to come here,” the forward told MUTV.
“And Morgan as well – it’s great to see Bastian, him, Matteo and Memphis all come in and give the squad a boost. It’s exciting times and I’m sure, over the next week or two, it’ll be great for us to get some training sessions in and get to know each other’s games.”
The Red Devils kick off their pre-season preparations with a friendly against Club America on Saturday and Rooney is looking forward to seeing how the new signings adapt.
“Bastian speaks very good English so that’s a boost for the squad, too,” he added. “He’s a fantastic player, he’s shown that over the years and it’s great that we’ve got him and I’m sure he’ll be a good player for us.
“We had the day we first flew out when we first met Bastian and Morgan and they’ve settled in as well as they can do in a couple of days. It’s great to have them with us.”
