Manchester United's Instagram account posts photo of two great football minds chatting ahead of flight to USA

Two of the greatest football minds were snapped deep in conversation on Monday ahead of Manchester United’s flight to USA.

Bastian Schweinsteiger put pen to paper on a three-year deal on Saturday after he completed a reported £15m move to Old Trafford from Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

The World Cup winner won eight German titles and the Champions League with Bayern before he decided to take on a new challenge at Old Trafford.

Schweinsteiger’s impressive record still falls someway short of Giggs’s heaving trophy collection, which includes a staggering 13 Premier League titles.

And United fans were treated to a snap of Giggs and Schweinsteiger in conversation on the club’s Instagram account on Monday afternoon.

The caption read: “Ryan Giggs and Bastian Schweinsteiger – two legends having a chat before take-off for #MUtour! ✈️”

Schweinsteiger immediately linked with his new team-mates ahead of their pre-season tour in United States.

The 30-year-old joined new signings Morgan Schneiderlin and Memphis Depay on the flight with the Red Devils squad.
