Bastian Schweinsteiger is unlikely to don a Manchester United shirt again this season, but Louis van Gaal believes the Germany captain could yet make Euro 2016.

Life since swapping Bayern Munich for Old Trafford has been topsy-turvy for the World Cup winner, with injury restricting him to just 31 appearances.

The last of those came in the derby win at Manchester City before an international break when Schweinsteiger suffered a partial medial collateral ligament tear during training with Germany ahead of the friendly with England.

That blow came having only recently returned from a two-month knee injury, with this current complaint set to rule him out for the rest of United's season if not perhaps this summer's European Championship in France.

"I don't think Schweinsteiger shall play this season - I think, next season, he is prepared," Van Gaal told MUTV.

"Maybe he is prepared for the European Championship, I cannot predict.

"It is possible, but then that is also in our favour because then he is fit for the new competition."
