Schneiderlin: 'Van Gaal persuaded me on the phone.'27-08-2015
The new Manchester United midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin, said that the telephone conversation with Manager Louis van Gaal was enough to persuade him to go with the Red Devils.
The French international left Southampton this summer, and everything around the transfer happened while he was on vacation with my soul mate and their friends. Then his agent informed him that van Gaal wants to talk to him on the phone.
'I was on vacation with my wife and friends.', told the 25-year-old Schneiderlin. 'My agent called me to warn me that Louis van Gaal will call. I had my phone with me all day.'
'He first sent me a TEXT MESSAGE to see if it is convenient to speak this afternoon. I said, you can call whenever you want. He spoke with me honestly and openly.'
United paid 24 million pounds to Southampton for Schneiderlin, and if the bonuses are activated, the amount will rise to 27 million euros.
