According to reports in Sports Illustrated, MLS side Chicago Fire are interested in signing out of favour midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger from Manchester United.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has openly said that the world cup winning midfielder is not a part of his plans and will not feature in his team if he stays at Old Trafford. Meanwhile, the former Bayern Munich star has revealed that United will be the last European club he plays for and so a move to America might materialise.

In his tweet, entitled “A brief message to the amazing fans about my current situation”, he wrote: “MUFC will be my last club in Europe. I respect other clubs but Manchester United was the only one which could make me leave Bayern Munich. I will be ready, if the team needs me.

“This is all I can say about my current situation. I want to thank the fans for their amazing support over the recent weeks.”

However, Schweinsteiger would not be able to join the MLS side until January when the MLS transfer window reopens, unless he and United agree to terminate his contract before September 14 allowing him to move on as a free agent.

In a recent interview, when Mourinho was asked about Schweinsteiger’s chances of forcing his way into the team, he  said: “I think it’s very difficult to happen. I’m not saying it’s impossible. I’m saying it’s very difficult.

“We have a decision completely made about  Pogba, Herrera, Schneiderlin, Fellaini and Michael Carrick.

“We have five players for two positions. It’s very difficult that an opportunity will arrive.

The former German international has recently expressed his desire of staying at United and has already rejected offers from other Premier League clubs and sides elsewhere in Europe, including both Milan clubs. But after hearing Mourinho’s comments, one can say that leaving United will be the best option for Schweinsteiger.

Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
