'No serious Manchester United bid for Morgan Schneiderlin'

The 25-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in recent weeks.

SOUTHAMPTON MANAGER RONALD Koeman has revealed the club are yet to receive a “serious bid” for Morgan Schneiderlin for Manchester United, despite speculation linking the midfielder with an imminent move to Old Trafford.

It is understood that, while United are closing in on the Frenchman, they are yet to meet Saints’ £25m asking price.

And Koeman insists recent rumours of a done deal are premature.

“We have the situation with Morgan Schneiderlin, we will have to wait what will happen,” said Koeman in an interview on the club’s official YouTube channel.

“Until now, we have not a serious bid for him from Man United.

“We will wait, but okay that’s business that normally starts from now [the start of pre-season]. And it’s no problem, it’s the first day. ”

Schneiderlin has represented Southampton in the top three tiers of English football, making 256 appearances for the club in all competitions.
