Does Schneiderlin count as home grown? Or was he not at southampton's youth for long enough.
Southampton did buy Schneiderlin from Strasbourg but he does qualify but it will cost a stupid amount of money to sign him.
Might not be a terrible big money signing that though, we need a quality central midfielder and a homegrown player who is young(ish) and could compete in our first XI. Rather him than Barkley, but tbh reckon Schneiderlin will go to united.
i think he would come at a decent fee. maybe 30M unless there is a price war (possible with spurs and arsenal interested). he will also most likely push for a move next summer. only b/c Southampton sold a lot of players this season they were unwilling to let him go (he tried his best)
I also think he is much better than fernando although I am willing to give him till the end of the season. He can play in a 2 and he is technically better. HG is another added advantage
