Bayer Munich have expressed willingness to bring back Bastian Schweinsteiger from Manchester United.
The German international, who signed for United last summer, has been asked to train with the reserves squad by Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho and has been told that he has no future at the club.
The 32-year-old won eight Bundesliga titles and one Champions League title during his time with Bayern. However, his debut season at United was ravaged by injuries, and he made only 18 league appearances for the Red Devils. He still has two years left on his current contract with United.
Bayern chairperson Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has suggested that the Bundesliga giants could consider bringing the club legend back to Allianz Arena.
“Should he speak at some point about a desire to return, then we will discuss it with him,” Rummenigge told Sport Bild (via Sky Sports).
Schweinsteiger’s brother, Tobias Schweinsteiger, on Monday, hinted at the predicament of his brother at United with a tweet. The tweet, which read “no respect”, seemed like a shot at United and manager Jose Mourinho.
