- Match Analysis
Bastian Schweinsteiger would be welcomed back to Bayern Munich, according to the club’s chairman.
The midfielder doesn’t appear to be a part of new boss Jose Mourinho’s plans at Old Trafford, with the Special One having cut him from the first-team squad.
The 32-year old has also been made to train with the club’s Under-23 side, in a bid to show that the Red Devils do not want him at the club and would like to sell him on.
With the midfielder obviously not part of the plans at Old Trafford, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has come out and spoken about the player, claiming that he would take the German back if he wanted to move.
Schweinsteiger has played for the Bundesliga side before and it is where he enjoyed some of the best football of his career. Since leaving the German giants, he has suffered with injury and struggled to make much of an impact at Man United because of this.
Now it appears his former club are more than willing to take him back and with United keen to offload the midfielder, a deal could be done to send him back to Bayern.
The only real issue could be his wages. Schweinsteiger has rather large wages for a player who has suffered with injuries over the last few seasons and Munich may be unwilling to pay such high amounts to bring him back.
However, United may be willing to help out Bayern with the financial aspect of proceedings and could contribute some pay towards any wages he would get at the German club in a bid to get him off their books.
Therefore, it looks like we could be seeing the Germany international back in Bayern colours quite soon.
