Old Trafford has been a busy place this summer with the new manager Jose Mourinho working seriously on shaping the squad up for the challenges up ahead.

The club has already bought in a number of top class European stars into the squad this summer and the manager will now look to get rid of players who will not fit into his style next season.

The likes of Juan Mata, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo are apparently at the end of their career in Manchester as the manager is looking to let players leave so as to have a compact but strong squad ahead of the next season.

And it is now revealed that the former Real Madrid manager is ready to let a veteran midfielder leave the club this summer.

German international Bastian Schweinsteiger moved to Manchester United under manager Louis van Gaal just last season but was able to make just 18 appearances in the league due to injuries. In the chances he got, he was not able to impress in the Red of Manchester and Mourinho is happy for him to leave the club this summer.

The manager wants the likes of Paul Pogba or Cesc Fabregas to take over the midfield next season and it is understood that Schweinsteiger is free to leave the club after just a season.

He is valued at £6.3 million which is low for a player of his caliber and that has now raised doubts over his fitness levels going into the next season.


The midfielder is one of the most experienced players in his position in Europe and is an asset for any team. He played an important role for Germany in their EURO campaign and if he wants to leave Old Trafford, there will be plenty of clubs looking to sign him up.

However, it would be a shame for the Red Devils to let go one a veteran footballer who hardly knows how to lose. He is a real resource even in the dressing room and leaving him may come back to haunt them next season.

However, if the manager feels that he will not settle into his style of play, it is better for the player and the team to part ways.

Do you think Manchester United should let Bastian Schweinsteiger leave this summer?
