Manchester United supporters were confidently declaring Morgan Schneiderlin a Red Devils player after the club’s photographer followed the midfielder on Twitter.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to the 20-time English champions in recent weeks after the midfielder made clear his desire to join a club in next season’s Champions League.

Southampton midfielder Schneiderlin has been touted as a reported target for Premier League champions Chelsea and FA Cup winners Arsenal in recent months as well as Tottenham Hotspur.

However, United fans were speculating whether the Red Devils had pipped their rivals to the signing of the £25m-rated midfielder after the club’s photographer followed Schneiderlin on Twitter on Sunday.

Schneiderlin has scored four goals and has made one assist in 26 Premier League appearances last season.
