Man United transfers: Liverpool legend talks up Bastian Schweinsteiger

Dietmar Hamann says Bastian Schweinsteiger is class, but questions whether Man United can accomdate German star

Dietmar Hamann has questioned whether Manchester United can accommodate Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger in their starting line-up.

The Germany international has been heavily linked with a move to the 13-time English champions in recent weeks with one year remaining on his current deal with the Bundesliga holders.

The 30-year-old World Cup winner previously played under current United manager Louis van Gaal during the Dutchman’s two-year reign at the Allianz Arena.

But former Bayern star Hamann isn’t sure whether the Red Devils boss could play both Michael Carrick and Schweinsteiger in his United midfield.

Schweinsteiger has won eight Bundesliga titles, eight German Cups and the Champions League during a 14-year spell at Bayern.

The Germany midfielder has scored 67 goals in 500 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga champions.
