Manchester United will allow Bastian Schweinsteiger to complete a transfer away for as little as £2million, according to latest reports.
The German midfielder has been cast aside by new manager Jose Mourinho this season, having been made to train with United’s Under-23 squad in a move that his brother claimed ‘bullying’.
Schweinsteiger is reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Inter Milan and AC Milan despite failing to impress at Old Trafford, and Bild report he is available for a bargain price.
United spent around £6.5m on the former Bayern Munich man just over a year ago but are ready to take a loss on the 32-year-old before the end of the transfer window.
Previously regarded as one of the best midfield players in the world, Schweinsteiger could still be seen as an attractive target for just £2m by a number of top clubs around Europe.
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 edging closer to an end, the Red Devils are still confident they can find a buyer for the veteran midfielder.
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.
