New York Red Bulls will not help to rescue Bastian Schweinsteiger’s career after the midfielder fell out of favour at Manchester United.
The Germany legend left Bayern Munich for United last summer, however, since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, has been unable to get into the Portuguese’s plans and has yet to make an appearance for the Red Devils this season.
But despite it having previously been reported that the 32-year-old had no desire to quit Old Trafford for regular first team football, reports are now suggesting the German is looking for a way out of the club, with MLS in his sights.
However, any hopes of an imminent move across the Atlantic, with New York Red Bulls, has been dashed.
“Bastian Schweinsteiger is a great player with a great career.” said Red Bull’s head of global soccer, Oliver Mintzlaff.
“But there have been no conversations. He isn’t and will not be a topic for us.”
Schweinsteiger joined United in July last year for £15 million and is contracted to the club until July 2018, but has been told it will be “very difficult” to get into Mourinho’s plans.
However, MLS boss Don Garber is not ruling out the possibility of the former Germany midfielder moving to America, even though New York Red Bulls have rejected the possibility.
“We would receive Bastian with open arms.” said Garber. “He would be a leader for our young players.”
