Louis van Gaal chasing experience as he makes move for Bayern Munich duo


Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is ready to make a move for Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger and Dante to add experience to his squad, the Evening Standard reports.

The midfielder suffered a number of injuries in his last three seasons at Bayern, featuring only 20 times for the German champions in the Bundesliga and only 6 times in the Champions League.

When asked about the future of the 30-year old, coach Pep Guardiola told German reporters: "Bastian is a Bayern Munich legend.

"I hope he stays but he has to decide his future, the call is not mine or Rummenigge's".

Dante, 31, was more consistent in the defensive department, starting more than 35 games in all competitions in Pep Guardiola's side.

Schweinsteiger is available for an estimated fee of £10m. For Dante, the Red Devils are only ready to offer £8m.

In other news, Bayern Munich legend Philipp Lahm revealed that Manchester United tried to sign him but he opted to stay in Germany.

"As a player you always think about your options," the 31-year-old told Squawka.

"There was a time where Manchester United made an approach for me – and Barcelona looked at me too – so I considered life in England or Spain.

"The Premier League was an interesting possibility. But in the end I decided to stay in Germany."
