Bastian Schweinsteiger in no rush to decide future amid Manchester United speculation

by Robbie Dunne

Manchester United target Bastian Schweinsteiger will discuss his future with Bayern Munich this summer and is in no rush to make a decision just yet.

The German midfielder has one year to run on his current deal with the German champions and as the 30-year-old has been at the club since 1998, it will not be the easiest decision to make.

Schweinsteiger worked with Louis van Gaal at Bayern Munich from 2009 until 2011 and the Dutch manager transformed him into a deeper lying midfielder than he was accustomed to, a decision which has since shaped his career.

Speaking after Germany’s 2-1 loss to the USA, Schweingstiger said: “I have agreed to discuss my future with Rummenigge during the summer.

“I still have one year left on my contract. That’s why I am in no rush, even more so because it’s still only early summer.”

Reports have also emerged that Bayern would only sell him to Manchester United but the general consensus is that the midfielder is not what United need as of now.

A player with World Cup winning pedigree would never be shunned by supporters but with a lack of energy and a box to box midfielder in United’s ranks, it is believed that this must be a priority ahead of the new season.
