In his prime, the German World Cup winner was one of the best in the world but his powers have waned in recent years.

Schweinsteiger would give Louis van Gaal’s side some quality depth as well as providing some leadership on the pitch.
The 30-year-old has given years of loyal service to Bayern and it may be unlikely that he would want to leave the club he has played at all his career.
That being said, it would be a coup if van Gaal persuaded Schweinsteiger to join United and his signing would send a real statement of intent to the rest of the Premier League. As ever, United Peoples TV will keep you up to date with all the stories as they happen.
