Pic: Bastian Schweinsteiger was destined to play for Manchester United as seen in this childhood snap

The German has also given his first interview.

Manchester United fans are probably thinking about what their strongest starting XI should be for next season now because there's no denying that their midfield options have been boosted with the arrivals of Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Seeing the German in wearing the red jersey might be enough to give United fans a small shiver of excitement but the World Cup winner has had an affinity for the club ever since he was a young boy.

Granted, we've seen plenty of images of footballers wearing the kits of other teams, Steven Gerrard in the Everton jersey springs to mind, but there's a nice symmetry to Schweinsteiger's career now because it seemed like he always had a soft spot for Manchester United.

Take a look.

The German also gave his first interview with MUTV this afternoon and his level of spoken English is superb. He even managed to crack a few jokes.
