New Chicago Fire Designated Player Bastian Schweinsteiger arrived in his new hometown tonight. The former Manchester United midfielder strolled through the international arrival terminal at Chicago O’Hare International Airport early Tuesday evening.

More than 500 singing, chanting and flag-waving fans were on hand to welcome the legend of German football to the Windy City.

This is a huge move for the Chicago Fire. It may be the biggest signing in Chicago Fire history.

Schweinsteiger said in a statement to the Tribune: “Throughout my career, I’ve always sought opportunities where I hoped to make a positive impact and to help make something great.”

“My move to Chicago Fire is no different. Through my conversations with Nelson and [coach Veljko Paunovic], I’m convinced by the club’s vision and philosophy and I want to help them with this project.”

Below are videos and photos of this monumental moment at O’Hare. The former Man United man will be formally introduced to the media and the city tomorrow at 3pm central.

He is just the second World Cup winner to ever sign with a Major League Soccer team.
