Schweinsteiger nearing Man Utd exit

Schweini heading to MLS?

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is reportedly on the verge of sealing a move to Major League Soccer. The German footballer was spotted having a luncheon with Chicago Fire manager Veljko Paunovic.

Schweinsteiger, 32, recently returned to the first-team setup after a couple of months with the Under-23 side.

According to The Manchester Evening News, the midfielder may have already decided on his next destination after he was photographed alongside Paunovic in a four-hour lunch session in Hale last week.

The World Cup winner has previously iterated that United would be his final club in Europe, and this provides a clear view where his future could lie at the start of 2017.

Apart from Chicago Fire, a whole host of Chinese clubs are said to be discussions with the player's representatives over a winter transfer.
