Bastian Schweinsteiger has seen his Manchester United career fall apart since the arrival of Jose Mourinho, but he remains a class act through it all.
The German international has yet to feature for the Portuguese tactician, as he has failed to make the squad for any of the competitive games this season so far.
In turn, although it looked likely that he would seek an exit before the deadline to avoid sitting on the sidelines in the months ahead, he has delivered an update on his situation.

Far from being an admission that he will leave, the 32-year-old is clearly still keen to earn his place in the starting line-up and will continue to fight for it.
However, what is clear is that he doesn’t wish to play for any other European club, and so that opens the door for a possible move to the likes of MLS or China in the future if he can’t rescue something from his time at Old Trafford.
Many will argue that he has been unfairly treated at United, but time will tell as to whether or not he can force his way into Mourinho’s plans and salvage something more from his stint in England.
