Bastian Schweinsteiger hasn’t featured in a single minute for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho, and now the club have made it public they’ve written off the cost of his transfer.
The German legend, however, wasn’t keen on leaving for any other European club during the summer transfer window, despite being told by Mourinho he wasn’t part of his plans.
According to France’s Telefoot, Marseille contacted Schweinsteiger over a move in the last moments of the transfer window.
It’s reported Marseille could well revive their interest in the 32-year-old during the January transfer window, the Ligue 1 side looking to bring in four players.
Schweinsteiger has already publicly said he wouldn’t move to any other European club, and it’d be interesting to see if Marseille can convince him.
The former Bayern Munich star is also on very high wages at Manchester United, and that could also make things complicated for the Ligue 1 club.
Schweinsteiger could also consider moving to the MLS should a space become available.
