MUNICH, September 9- TSV 1860 Rosenheim have revealed the transfer fee Manchester United paid to acquire Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich.
The Germany international was heavily linked with the Red Devils during the recent transfer window and finally completed his move on July 13.
The fee for Schweinsteiger had been undisclosed, although some reports suggested the 31-year-old midfielder had cost United up to £14 million.
However, the Bavarian club, where the 2014 World Cup winner started his career before joining Bayern’s youth system in 1998, have announced they are set to receive a windfall payment from the deal, which amounted to £6.5m.
A statement on the club’s official website read: “The transfer fee adds up to 9 million euros. We have been credited for two years [that Schweinsteiger spent at the club].
“We will receive the payment in two instalments, and after deducting the advisor and legal costs, we will receive 19,000 euros. We already received the first instalment in August.”
A press release from their finance director, Sandro Sacco, added: “We are delighted about Bastian’s incredible career and also that we profit from it financially as his first club.”
