Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director denies move for Bastian Schweinsteiger

by Leo Nieboer


Borussia Monchengladbach sporting director Max Eberl has confirmed the Bundesliga side will not make a bid for Bastian Schweinsteiger in the January transfer window.

Schweinsteiger was immediately banished from the first team following Jose Mourinho’s arrival in June, with the Portuguese insisting that the 32-year-old was not part of his plans for this season.

But the German, despite facing outright rejection at Old Trafford, made it clear that he wouldn’t seek a move away, insisting that Man United would be the last European club he plays for. 

Ederl dismissed rumours of a possible return to Germany for Schweinsteiger, labelling the midfielder as a “fantastic player” whilst confirming that no offer would be made for his services.


The prospect of Schweinsteiger moving to another European club has been dismissed by the man himself, which leaves the German with a tricky decision to make.

He could, of course, seek a move further overseas, perhaps to the MLS, where various clubs – with Chicago Fire acting as the frontrunners – have expressed a desire to make him their centre-piece. The other option involves persisting with his endeavours at Old Trafford, continuing an impressive resurgence that has seen him go from training alone to securing a place in the match-day squad.

United fans, still very much supportive of Schweinsteiger, will be keen to see the Deutscher Fußballmeister choose the latter option.
