Last summer, Manchester United set aside £6million to bring in one of the best midfielders of his generation in the form of Bastian Schweinsteiger. This was a deal that got all corners of Old Trafford excited, because he is one of the most iconic players to ever grace the turf.
Despite an excellent start to life at the Theatre of Dreams, Schweinsteiger’s abilities gradually faded as the season progressed. It culminated in the German star not playing a game from February onwards due to a serious knee injury.
Now reports suggest that Manchester United would be willing to let the 32-year-old leave on a free transfer if a club shows enough interest in him.
It would be a real shame to see him leave after just one year of his three-season contract, but you’d understand the logic behind letting him go. He simply hasn’t done enough to warrant a place in the match-day squad let alone the starting line-up, and if he can find minutes elsewhere then you’d certainly urge him to take the opportunity with boht hands.
