Schweinsteiger insists no Chelsea offer

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has played down talk of a move to Stamford Bridge, despite meeting Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich, ESPN reports.

The German international spent time with Abramovich as he visited Germany’s Euro 2012 training base earlier this week. Schweinsteiger missed the decisive penalty for Bayern Munich, as they lost to Chelsea in the Champions League final, but Abramovich is impressed by the 27 year old. Chelsea are looking to revitalise their squad and have already signed Eden Hazard from Lille, as well as Marko Marin from Werder Bremen. Schweinsteiger was quick to quell reports of a move to Stamford Bridge and was surprised to see the Russian at the base.

Schweinsteiger said: “I was surprised to see him and wondered why he was here. I’ve congratulated him and we had a brief chat. No, he didn’t make me an offer.”

Germany coach Joachim Low confirmed the meeting, but believes that there was no ulterior motive behind Abramovich and Schweinsteiger’s discussions. Abramovich is prepared to back new boss Roberto di Matteo in the transfer market and wants to sign Polish international pair Robert Lewandowski and Lukasz Piszczek.

Lewandowski is a target of Manchester United’s affections and Piszczek will be signed if the club cannot seal a deal for Lille right-back Mathieu Debuchy.
