Bastian Schweinsteiger could seek Bayern Munich exit

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has seemingly opened the door for a move away from the German giants, reports the Express.

Citing Spanish sources, it has been claimed that the German international has, in an extract in his upcoming autobiography, admitted that he could move abroad, with his contract set to come to an end at the Allianz Arena in 2016.

Achieved everything 

In fact, the same report has suggested that the 30-year-old, who has spent his entire career at Bayern, believes he has achieved all he can with the club. 

And the report has gone on to reveal that this news could alert Premier League duo Manchester United and Chelsea, who have both previously shown interest in the midfield ace. 

LVG reunion 

Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal, of course, previously managed Schweinsteiger when he was in charge of the German giants, and could yet be reunited with the Bayern man at Old Trafford. 

In fact, the report has suggested that the Manchester United boss attempted - and ultimately failed - to bring Schweinsteiger to England's elite division this past summer. 

It remains to be seen as to whether the United manager will step up his interest in him once again this summer or whether he will look elsewhere, with the likes of Kevin Strootman and Nigel de Jong also being linked with moves to the club.

Chelsea options 

Chelsea, meanwhile, despite already possessing an array of midfield talent, would only improve if they added the Bayern man to their ranks, but he may struggle to fit in alongside the likes of Nemanja Matic and Co. 

However, if United and Chelsea do chase Schweinsteiger this summer, then it certainly won't prove easy to secure his signature, with the same report from the Express revealing that the likes of PSG, Real Madrid and Barcelona are keen on landing him. 

There's no doubt about it, despite being 30-years of age, the midfield man still has plenty to offer as he continues to excel at the highest level. He's still one of the leading midfielders in world football, so would prove quite the coup for any club if they managed to secure his signature. 

Bayern fans will no doubt be hoping that he sticks around in Germany for a little while yet, but perhaps a move to England could still happen.
