Man United remain intent on offloading senior star

Manchester United remain eager to get rid of Bastian Schweinsteiger, according to reports from ESPN.

The 32-year-old Germany international signed for the Red Devils from Bayern Munich last summer as one of the big name additions of Louis van Gaal’ final off-season in charge at Old Trafford.

Despite arriving to a great fanfare given his experience and numerous titles at both club and international level, Schweinsteiger struggled in his debut season with the Red Devils.

Indeed, the veteran registered only 18 Premier League appearances, notching a solitary goal – a late winner against Watford in November 2015.

There have been numerous claims that Schweinsteiger does not feature in Jose Mourinho’s plans going forward and that he has been forced to train away from the first-team squad – and ESPN understand that he remains a player they’re keen to get rid of.

Should Manchester United be unable to find a suitor for their man, they may be forced to negotiate a settlement with the player to terminate his contract in Manchester.
