Manchester United’s out-of-favour midfielder Bastain Schweinsteiger has signalled his desire to remain at Old Trafford according to the Daily Mail.
Per-the-source, Schweinsteiger turned down an opportunity to leave United this summer despite being omitted from Jose Mourinho’s squad for the 2016-17 season.
Schweinsteiger joined United on a three-year deal from Bayern Munich last summer but his first season at the club was blighted by injuries. The 32-year-old has not started a game for the Red Devils since January.
“New York is a great city, but I have a contract with United until 2018 and you know what the atmosphere is like at Old Trafford and it’s my dream to run out there again,’ he said in Monchengladbach,” Schweinsteiger was quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“I listen to myself, listen to my heart. Of course I speak to others, but I make the decision.”
Schweinsteiger also played his final game for the Germany national team earlier this week. The midfielder made his debut for Germany back in June 2004 and ends his international career with 121 caps.
The former Bayern Munich star was part of Germany’s squad which featured at Euro 2016 and ended the competition with one goal.
