Jose Mourinho’s overhaul of the Manchester United squad is well underway, with the new boss looking to get rid of some deadwood. It seems as though one man who could well be on his way out of the exit door is Bastian Schweinsteiger, and no his brother could have just confirmed the news.
Yesterday, it was revealed that Manchester United and Mourinho had forced Bastian Schweinsteiger, to train with the youth team, and now that has been followed up by a rather oddly-timed tweet from Tobi Schweinsteiger, Bastian’s brother.
He simply wrote ‘no respect’ on his page, and call me cynical, but this simply cannot be just a mere coincidence with everything that has gone on at the club recently.

It would be a real shame to see Schweinsteiger leave Old Trafford this summer, but you’d totally understand the logic in parting with a 32-year-old who has had severe injury problems over the years.
At this point in time, Mourinho is trying to build a legacy, and he clearly has no space in his squad for that type of player – particularly one on such high wages.
