Bastian Schweinsteiger transfer fee from Bayern to Man United disclosed

Bastian Schweinsteiger's first club, TSV 1860 Rosenheim, have revealed how much Manchester United paid for the Germany captain.

Schweinsteiger, 31, left Bayern Munich, where he had one year remaining on his contract, and joined United this summer.

When making the move, it was reported that United paid close to €20 million for the 2014 World Cup winner.

But his first club, Rosenheim, where he played until 1998, have now disclosed the exact transfer fee.

"The transfer fee adds up to €9 million," the club announced on their official website.

According to FIFA statutes, Rosenheim, who currently play in the regional fifth tier Bayernliga Sud, are set to receive a windfall of €38,000 for the United star.

"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," Sandro Sacco, the club's finance director, said in the press release. "We already received the first instalment in August."

The press release added: "We are delighted about Bastian's incredible career and also that we profit from it financially as his first club."
