Done deal, ladies and gentlemen. Done deal. Manchester United have confirmed the signing of Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich. Look, here's a picture of him wearing the shirt.

Looks weird, no? Schweinsteiger in Nike? But that won't be a problem for too long. Look, here's another picture!

No number yet. Wonder if Jonny Evans' no. 6 shirt might be available soon ...

Anyway, here are some quotes. Player says nice things about manager ...

Manchester United is the only club that I would have left Munich for. I feel ready for this new and exciting challenge in what I regard as the most competitive league in the world and I am looking forward to working with Louis van Gaal again.

... and manager says nice things about player.

Bastian is, of course, no stranger to me. I worked with him during my time at Bayern Munich and I am truly delighted he is joining Manchester United ... [He] is the ultimate professional and there is no doubting his talent and his ability to control games. He brings a wealth of experience and is an excellent addition to our squad.

There's more over on United's website. GET HYPED.
