Jose Mourinho takes drastic measures to force Bastian Schweinsteiger out of Man Utd

Bastian Schweinsteiger's immediate future lies away from Manchester United, that much is certain.

The midfielder has been told by Jose Mourinho to find a new club following a debut season where he failed to impress and struggled for fitness.

It's a shame really because, prior to his move from Bayern Munich, Schweinsteiger was a recent World Cup winner and regarded as one of European football's finest playmakers.

How times have changed.

Since returning from international duty at Euro 2016, the 32-year-old has become something of an outcast at United after being told to train with the reserve team.

In fact, so out of favour is Schweinsteiger that Mourinho has taken some pretty drastic measures to force him out of the club.

According to The Sun, Mourinho has told the German to clear out his first-team locker and move his belongings into the reserve team's changing room.


Schweinsteiger perhaps doesn't deserve to be treated with such disrespect, but it just goes to show how determined Mourinho is to dispose of him.

A number of Champions League clubs are said to be interested in signing the former Germany captain, but any return to Bayern has officially been ruled out by chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

He said: "I am 100 per cent convinced that Schweinsteiger will not return to Germany.

"I can see him staying at Manchester United and try to achieve their goals under a new coach.

"Maybe he could surprise Mourinho. Either way, Bastian has had an amazing career. Nothing can change that."

Unwanted at his current club; unwanted by his former club. Schweinsteiger's summer just keeps getting worse.

He's not the only one due to leave United, though, after Mourinho reportedly told nine players they will be sold or sent on loan.

Adnan Januzaj, James Wilson, Will Keane, Andreas Pereira and Paddy McNair are all set for exits, while Marouane Fellaini - who Mourinho actually plans to keep - is a top target for David Moyes' Sunderland.
