MLS chief backs Bastian Schweinsteiger amid transfer links

by Tanveer Arayan


Bastian Schweinsteiger could find a way out of his Manchester United exile by joining MLS.

Major League Soccer chief Don Barber has heaped praise on the German and has said he would be welcome in America.

Manchester Evening News claim his exit is investable with Dallas to offer him a way out of Old Trafford.

Speaking about Schweinsteiger, Barber insists he has always admired the 32-year-old’s success.

“He is an incredible player,” he said.

“I always admired him and the success that his teams had. That is no coincidence, he is a winner.

“At the moment we only have space for one designated player and we wanted to fill this with a striker. Maybe it will change, we will see.“

They can’t act until after the MLS Cup is completed in early December, but Bastian has been continuously linked with a move to America and has stated United would be the last European club he would play for.

He has not featured this season under Jose Mourinho and has been left out of the Europa League squad, while being written off in the club’s latest accounts.

Although Mourinho stated it wouldn’t be impossible for him to fight for his place in the squad, he has an uphill task of trying to prove himself ahead of United’s stacked midfield.
