Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has urged club legend Bastian Schweinsteiger to leave Manchester United in January, despite him being thrown a lifeline by Jose Mourinho.
The 32-year-old has not played a single minute for the Red Devils this season but United manager Jose Mourinho welcomed him back into first-team training yesterday with the club facing an injury crisis and suspensions.
Schweinsteiger was told to find a new club by the 53-year-old gaffer in the summer transfer window but potential buyers were put off by the midfielder’s wage demands.
Even though the Germany international has returned to first-team commitments rather than training with the U21s side, there is still a very slim chance that he still has a future at the Theatre of Dreams.
As a result, Rummenigge has urged the Bayern Munich legend to leave the English giants as soon as possible.
“My wish for him is that they find a solution when the transfer window opens again in January,” said Rummenigge.
“It is difficult to manage a generation change but you always have to remain tactful and understanding.”
