Manchester United could sell Bastian Schweinsteiger and more transfer rumours

Bastian Schweinsteiger might get another standing ovation for prioritising wages over game-time against Wigan next week but there are suggestions the 32-year-old could also leave United this month.

The Telegraph writes ‘talks are ongoing with potential suitors, including Major Soccer League clubs in the US’. Schweinsteiger was spotted with Chicago coach Veljko Paunovic leaving chic Hale restaurant Piccolino during the November international fortnight and has expressed an interest in moving to the United States.

United’s problem with Schweinsteiger is the player does not appear to be in any rush to leave and a move to America might only be possible if the club bought out the remainder of his contract, which expires in 2018.

United, though, might be prepared to let Schweinsteiger go for a knockdown fee instead. The MLS transfer record is the $9million Seattle Sounders paid Tottenham for Clint Dempsey.

Ashley Young, 31, is supposedly considering a move to the Chinese Super League, specifically Shandong Luneng. Young, who has made just five starts this term, could earn £16m-a-year.

Sergio Romero has reportedly rejected a six-month loan move to Boca Juniors. The time for Romero to leave United could be in the summer – when he has a year left on his contract. A return to Argentina then would be logical ahead of next year’s World Cup in Russia.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas reckons Memphis is a ‘dream’ signing.

“It was a dream, because he corresponds exactly with the player we were looking for,” he told RMC.

“In addition, he has a certain panache. It is true that José Mourinho did not play him that much, so there was an opportunity that we took when we negotiated with the representatives of Manchester United.

“It is in progress, but I think it will require another 48 hours for him to be registered.”

In case you missed it, Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone gave United a boost by hinting the club could sell Antoine Griezmann for £86million. The Atletico president quickly tried to counter that, though.
