Bastian Schweinsteiger: Surplus to requirements at United

Manchester United outcast Bastian Schweinsteiger could find a way out of his Old Trafford nightmare by joining MLS.

The Manchester Evening News claim the 32-year-old’s “exit is inevitable” – and MLS outfit Dallas could offer him a way out of Old Trafford.

Major League Soccer chief Don Barber has said Schweinsteiger, who recently hung up his Germany boots, would be welcome in America in an interview in German for Eurosport.

The German veteran has repeatedly been linked with a move to the US and Dallas president Dan Hunt is a fan, telling SPOX : “He is an incredible player.

“I always admired him and the success that his teams had. That is no coincidence, he is a winner.”

They cannot act until after the MLS Cup is completed in early December and Hunt added: “At the moment we only have space for one designated player and we wanted to fill this with a striker. Maybe it will change, we will see.“

Schweinsteiger has not featured this season and has been left out of the Europa League squad, while being written off in the club’s latest accounts.

The club recently announced their financial results for the year ending June 30, 2016 and under the ‘exceptional items’ section of United’s annual results, it listed a sum of £6.7million “related to a registrations’ impairment charge regarding a reduction in the carrying value of a player no longer considered to be a member of the first team playing squad”.

It is understood Schweinsteiger is that individual and could not be included as an asset as it may give an unfair impression to investors.
