Bastian Schweinsteiger is plotting a swift return to Munich, but not for footballing reasons. The Manchester United midfielder wants to take his new team-mates to the German festival Oktoberfest.

The Germany international has settled in to life at Old Trafford well, making his debut as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, and wants to give his team-mates a taste of German culture.

As per the Independent, Schweinsteiger spoke to Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney about the possibility of taking his new colleagues to the German festival.

He said: "I spoke to [Wayne] Rooney and discussed the possibility of me inviting the team to Oktoberfest but I don’t know how much time we’ll have,"

It would seem very unlikely Louis van Gaal would allow his squad to go to the festival with the season in full swing. During the festival period United have away trips to Southampton and Arsenal, along with a home fixture against Sunderland.


Despite only coming off the bench for his debut, it is clear to see Schweinsteiger will have a big influence of the United team this season.

His presence in the middle of the park in the second half at Old Trafford appeared to calm down the United team, when they were being put under pressure by Spurs.

He orchestrated play from deep, giving the ball to his team mates, getting it back and stretching play. He even showed his passing ability with some pin point long passes.

When the World Cup winner is fully fit expect United to be a different animal. The midfielder will bring something to the midfield that has been missing since the days of Paul Scholes. He even has that snap in the tackle, as was shown from his yellow card soon after entering the game.

United fans, how big an influence will Schweinsteiger have this season? Have your say below!
