There has been plenty of speculation surrounding Bastian Schweinsteiger in recent weeks and the German midfielder has finally cleared things up.
Jose Mourinho has seemingly deemed the 32-year-old surplus to requirements this season with the arrival of Paul Pogba for a record-breaking £89 million.
Earlier this month, Mourinho was accused of bullying for the way he's treating Schweinsteiger by FIFpro Raymond Baard and even suggested the Special One could go to prison for his actions.
And now, Schweinsteiger has finally made a statement regarding his situation. The former Bayern Munich man has written an emotional tweet to thank the Manchester United fans and to discuss his future.
He wrote: “MUFC will be my last club in Europe. I respect other clubs, but Manchester United was the only one which could make me leave Bayern Munich.
“I will be ready, if the team needs me. This is all I can say about the current situation. I want to thank the fans for the amazing support over the recent weeks.”
Schweinsteiger’s tweet doesn’t exactly confirm his departure from Old Trafford, although it appears to hint at a possible move to America or China this summer.
With just one week remaining in the transfer window, it will certainly be interesting to see where he ends up or if he actually stays at the Theatre of Dreams. One thing is for sure, we won’t be seeing Schweinsteiger move to another team in Europe.
