Manchester United signing Morgan Schneiderlin posts message for Southampton fans on Instagram
Morgan Schneiderlin has posted an emotional farewell to Southampton and its supporters after the midfielder completed a move to Manchester United on Monday.
The France international has signed a four-year deal with the Red Devils after the 25-year-old finally sealed a move away from St Mary’s following 12 months of intense speculation.
Schneiderlin moved to Southampton in 2008 and he helped the south coast climb out of the League Two and reach the Premier League in 2012 before cementing his status as one of the division’s best midfielders.
And the United signing reflected on his switch from being a saint to a devil on his Instagram page this afternoon.
Schneiderlin wrote: “Since 2008 you’ve been my home. Such incredible staff, players and fans. I can never thank you enough for what you’ve done for me.
The Southampton star has scored 15 goals in 260 games in all competitions for the south-coast club over the past seven seasons.
The Frenchman is United’s fourth signing of the summer following the arrivals of Memphis Depay, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Matteo Darmian.
