Bastian Schweinsteiger has definitely been among the best defensive midfielders in the last ten years, but it seems that his time among the world class could be at an end. The 2014 World Cup winner with Germany has been permanently benched by Jose Mourinho this season, as the Portuguese manager stated he will not need the German’s services at Manchester United.
The situation left Schweinsteiger with two choices – either leave Old Trafford or stay, train with the reserves and hope to be included in the first squad in some way. No official decision has been made by the midfielder yet, but his latest post in social media does provide some insight.
Given the fact that Mourinho has explicitly stated numerous times that Schweinsteiger will not be needed, we can expect to see the German play in MLS or China pretty soon.
