Schweinsteiger although is aware that he is surplus to requirement has been an absolute professional about his situation and has released a statement today on his official twitter account about his current situation.
He tweeted; “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.”
