Insider delivers update on Man United midfielder’s future
Bastian Schweinsteiger is more likely to move to Germany than Italy this summer, according to Emanuele Giulianelli
Bastian Schweinsteiger is more likely to move to Bayern Munich or Borussia Dortmund than head to Serie A in the summer transfer window, according to Italian journalist Emaneuele Giulianelli.
The 31-year-old Manchester United midfielder’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks following Jose Mourinho’s arrival as the club’s new manager.
It has been suggested in various media reports that the Red Devils are open to selling the German midfielder just a year after his transfer to Old Trafford last summer.
Now – according to Italian reporter Giulianelli – if he does leave United, Schweinsteiger is more likely to head back to the Bundesliga than join an Italian team.
Bastian Schweinsteiger, 31 today, more likely to come back to Bundesliga (Bayern or BVB) than Serie A, due to his heavy wage.

United are currently getting to grips with life under new manager Mourinho following the sacking of Louis van Gaal back in May.
World Cup winner Schweinsteiger recently announced his retirement from international duty with Germany following the conclusion of Euro 2016 in France, after his side reached the semi-finals.
