Manchester United only signed Bastian Schweinsteiger during the summer, and having spent roughly two months with the Mancunian Reds, the World Cup winner is already thinking about a return to his former club Bayern Munich in the nearest future.
Citing Die Zeit, ESPN is reporting that Schweinsteiger has revealed his desire to return to the Allianz Arena one day.
The midfield maestro made his debut for the Bavarian giants in 2002 in a Champions League match and ever since then, it’s been Bayern, save for this season when he decided to switch to Manchester United.
Schweinsteiger, 31, decided to make a reunion with his former boss Louis van Gaal, with just one year remaining on his contract at the Allianz Arena. And so far the move seems to be what the veteran midfielder would have wanted.
At first, Schweinsteiger looked like he was going to find it hard to find his feet in the English Premier league, but the German ace has proven his potentials and performed well in recent games.
But when quizzed about whether he would consider ending his career in Germany with his boyhood club, the midfield icon did not rule out the possibility. “Maybe that day will come,” he said.
Regarded as one of the finest midfielders in the game, Schweinsteiger made over 500 appearances for Bayern, winning lots of trophies in the process. He will now be hoping to replicate his Bayern Munich form for van Gaal’s side in the years to come, just like he did during his time at Bayern Munich.
United lost their first game of the Champions League to PSV Eindhoven, after making a return to European scene as they were absent in the past season.
