Bastian Schweinsteiger‘s former team-mate Lukas Podolski has hinted he could be set for an MLS move.
He has given a long interview where he spoke about future plans and revealed he could move to America with Schweinsteiger.
Jose Mourinho cut the midfielder from his plans in July, but the German claimed he would not play for another European club.
Speaking about a potential reunion, Podolski claimed what happened to Bastian is unfair.
“I think America is great. Moving abroad is good for personality development and it would also be good for our children,” he said.
“Clearly it would be possible to play with Schweinsteiger in the States. What happened to (Schweinsteiger) is unfair. It is not correct to deport Basti to the second team. A coach must always keep the doors open to all players.”
After declining a potential summer move, he has been left at United on his £200,000-a-week contract, but will not feature on the first-team.
He has also been training with the U23s but has not been considered for selection as an over-age player in any Premier League 2 fixtures.
At this point his odds of fighting his way back into the side are slim and the only way he could get any game-time under Mourinho is if an injury wave hits the squad.
