German newspaper Bild says Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is set to leave Bayern Munich for Manchester United.

The 30-year-old midfielder would be reunited with former Bayern coach Louis van Gaal, who is preparing for his second season in charge of United.

Bild says Schweinsteiger, who has a year remaining on his Bayern contract, will join on a three-year deal in a transfer worth around $20 million.

Germany’s Sky television also reported on Schweinsteiger’s impending departure after spending his entire career at Bayern.
