Bastian Schweinsteiger is someone who will always be in a great position to judge individual players' talents, having played for two of Europe's biggest clubs in Bayern Munich and Manchester United.

The former Germany international may have had a hellish time at Old Trafford, but the midfielder enjoyed an illustrious 13-year career in Bavaria with Bayern Munich - winning plenty of silverware amongst some of the biggest names in world football.

When the 32-year-old first arrived at Old Trafford, it wouldn't have phased the now Chicago Fire star who had spent over a decade playing alongside some huge names including Manuel Neuer, Philipp Lahm, Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Robert Lewandowski, to name a few.

But when it comes to considering where the Bundesliga giants - who secured their fifth successive Bundesliga title last Saturday - can improve their squad, there are very few players who could better a team already packed with world-class talent.

In Lewandowski, Bayern boast one of Europe's most prolific strikers, while Robben, Thomas Muller, Ribery, Manuel Neuer and retiring duo Xabi Alonso and Lahm provide the experience that the highly-rated Kingsley Coman, Joshua Kimmich and Renato Sanches are destined to obtain at the Allianz Arena.

However, regardless of their strength in depth, Schweinsteiger would happily welcome one of the world's biggest talents to the Bavarian giants and admits he is a big fan of one Barcelona star.

"That’s difficult, but if you ask me which kind of player I would like to see in the Bayern Munich jersey then I would probably say I would like to see Neymar in a Bayern Munich jersey," Schweinsteiger told Goal.

"Actually, I’m also quite a fan of Neymar. Not only about his game style, but also his personality."

The 25-year-old Brazilian drew criticism for socialising with the 2014 World Cup winner so soon after Germany had humiliated Brazil 7-1 in the semi-finals, on home soil. But Schweinsteiger has been pull of praise for the Barcelona star, on and off the pitch.

"I also remember in 2014 when we won the World Cup in Brazil, and I met him during my vacation — it was a coincidence," Schweinsteiger added.

"Then we spent some hours or some days together, so it was quite fun. He’s a good guy. He’s a typical Brazilian. His heart is good. He’s a good person and, for me, one of the best players at the moment."
