Out of the 7 opening matches of the season, Bastian Schweinsteiger still has not made a single appearance for Manchester United and it does not look like things will be changing anytime soon as the experienced midfielder is not in the plans of Jose Mourinho.
There are rumors going around involving Bastian Schweinsteiger and what he is going to do now that his presence in Old Trafford is almost non-existent, some of these rumors have linked the German player with a possible move to MLS and the commissioner of the American League has recently stated that they are open on having him join if he would like to do so.
Don Garber is the commissioner of the MLS and he said: “Of course we follow Bastian’s situation. He’s an old acquaintance in the United States, for example through the 2014 World Cup, when he played against the U.S. team. He also played against the MLS All-Stars with Bayern in 2014.We would welcome Bastian with open arms. He would be a leader for our many young players.”
At the age of 32, making a move to the MLS would be a viable option as Schweinsteiger is possibly reaching the last few years of his professional playing career and transferring to the American League is a trend that keeps on growing as veteran players can still keep performing without being as pressured as they would be if they opted to join another competitive football league.
Orlando City SC is one of the clubs in the MLS that has been linked with the German midfielder as they have already signed a high profile player with Ricardo Kaka and signing another one is not out of the realm of possibilities and the addition of a player such as Schweinsteiger can significantly increase the quality of the squad.
