New York Red Bulls turn down a move for Bastian Schweinsteiger

by Tanveer Arayan

Manchester United outcast Bastian Schweinsteiger has suffered a new low after being snubbed by New York Red Bulls.

He had turned down a January transfer away from Old Trafford and insisted Man United would be the last European club he would play for.

Schweinsteiger expressed his interest in joining the MLS, but Red Bull Head of Global Soccer Oliver Mintzlaff had told the German the club have no interest in his services.

“Schweinsteiger is a great player who has had an amazing career,” he said.

“But there are no talks [over a move to New York RB]. He is not an issue for us and he will not become an issue.”

It’s gone from bad to worse for Bastian, he last featured for Man United in the Manchester derby victory over City back in March and has been left out of Mourinho’s plans.

He retired from international duty in September to keep himself fit but hasn’t been able to fight his way back into Man United’s side.

After an injury-plagued debut season he wasn’t able to live up to expectations and quickly slipped to the bottom of the pecking order after the Portuguese boss took over.

It remains to be seen when he’ll be back in competitive action, but after his latest snub, it seems like he’ll be waiting a while.
