Manchester United will consider a £23million move for Bastian Schweinsteiger after missing out on fellow Germany midfielder Thomas Muller.

Muller, 24, was high on United’s wanted list but has pledged his future to Bayern Munich by signing a new ?ve-year contract.Muller has been told he is integral to Pep Guardiola’s plans, casting doubt over the future of team-mate Schweinsteiger at the Allianz Arena.

United have tracked Schweinsteiger, 29, since last summer and incoming coach Louis van Gaal is known to be an admirer.

United are desperate for reinforcements in mid?eld and could be forced to start the season without Darren Fletcher.The Scotland player is due to undergo a scan on a toe injury this week and an operation, if required, would keep him out for up to a month.
