Manchester United target could leave Bayern Munich this summer

Oliver Kahn has revealed that he wouldn't be surprised to see Manchester United target Bastian Schweinsteiger leave Bayern Munich this summer, reports the Daily Mail.

The 29-year-old midfielder has been in and out of Pep Guardiola's first-team, which could prompt a move away from the Allianz Arena at the end of the season.

Schweinsteiger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford on a number of occasions, and Red Devils boss David Moyes was believed to be considering a €40million bid for the Germany international before the start of the 2013/14 campaign.

Despite already breaking Manchester United's club-record transfer to secure the services of Juan Mata in a £37.1million deal, Moyes is expected to continue his recruitment drive as he looks to make his mark on the side in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.

Schweinsteiger has made just 10 Bundesliga appearances this term, and with Thiago Alcantara, Javi Martinez and Mario Gotze now all recovered from injury, his playing time looks like being increasingly difficult to come by.

"If you have an offer from a club like Bayern, Barca or Manchester United, you have to accept it," Kahn told German newspaper kicker.

"[I] could understand it completely if Bastian were to leave."

Schweinsteiger remains under contract with Bayern until 2016, and so the German giants will likely demand a significant transfer fee.
