Manchester United are quite confident that they will find a buyer for World Cup winning German star Bastian Schweinsteiger before the summer transfer window closes.

The midfielder’s future lies away from Manchester United after Jose Mourinho made it clear that he wasn’t part of his plans moving forward.

Schweinsteiger, who won the World Cup with Germany in 2014, did not feature in any of Man United’s pre-season fixtures throughout the summer and has been training with the reserves since returning from his holidays after Euro 2016.

With the transfer window closing in just over a fortnight, Man Utd are still confident they can find a buyer for Schweinsteiger, according to Manchester Evening News.

The 32-year-old, who joined Man Utd last summer from Bayern Munich for just £6.6 million, has two years left on his contract at Old Trafford but it’s likely that he will not see out the duration of his deal.

Schweinsteiger arrived at United last year with plenty of concerns regarding his fitness after missing so many games the year before with Bayern Munich, and he did nothing to allay those fears in the Premier League.

He made just 18 appearances in the top flight last season and missed 17 of their last 18 matches in the league too, which is probably the main reason why Jose Mourinho would like to sell him on now while he still can.

Not to mention the fact that Paul Pogba has just arrived from Juventus for £89 million, so Schweinsteiger’s chances of featuring in a two- or three-man midfield were cut significantly.
