The Bastian Schweinsteiger saga at Manchester United has taken a new turn with newly-appointed boss Jose Mourinho warning the former German international that he is unlikely to play again for the English giants if he insists to remain at Old Trafford for the remainder of his contract.

The former Bayern Munich midfielder was heavily linked with a move away from United after falling out of favours with the Portuguese boss but recent developments are suggesting that  Schweinsteiger is willing to remain at the club.

Mourinho admitted that Schweinsteiger has the right to stick to the terms of his contract. But at the same time he warned that the midfielder is not a part of his plans.

“He (Schweinsteiger) has spoken to me,’ said Mourinho. “I cannot answer for him. It’s his life, his career.

“He has a contract with Man United and a right to make that decision and stay. So that’s not a problem for us.

“Football is made of decisions. I knew that all my career, not just me, everyone does.

“Some players react in a different way and have different kinds of decisions.

“To be honest, Bastian is not speaking a lot. He gave his last statement which he is completely free to do in an objective and polite way.

“But I think it is very difficult for him (to play). I’m not saying it’s impossible. I’m saying it’s very difficult.
“We have a decision completely made about (Paul) Pogba, (Ander) Herrera, (Morgan) Schneiderlin, (Marouane) Fellaini, Michael Carrick. We have five players for two positions. It’s very, very difficult that an opportunity will arise.

“I have 23 players in the squad and in principle nobody is leaving because I don’t want anybody to leave and nobody is coming – 23 players is more than enough.

“If you have any kind of problem or opportunity I have a few young players in the academy that I will be more than happy to give them an acceleration in their process.”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. 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.
