Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has ruled out a move to Galatasaray and he is ready to help the Red Devils if needed.

The former Germany captain, who joined the club from Bayern Munich last summer, has found himself frozen out at Old Trafford under new manager Jose Mourinho’s regime.

The 31-year-old doesn’t feature in the Portuguese’s plans, and has been training with the reserves since he returned for the club this summer from Germany’s European Championship campaign.

The Premier League giants remain keen to offload him, and Schweinsteiger has been linked with a move to a number of clubs, including Turkish giants Galatasaray.

However, Schweinsteiger appears to have ruled out a move to Turkey as he stressed that Manchester United will be his last club in Europe.  


The 31-year-old wrote on his Facebook page: “MUFC will be my last club in Europe.

“I respect other clubs, but Manchester United was the only one which could make me leave FC Bayern Munchen. I will be ready if the team needs me. This is all I can say about the current situation.

“I want to thank the fans for the amazing support over the recent weeks.”

Schweinsteiger made just 13 league starts last season, and played very little football since the turn of the year because of niggling injuries.

He has a contract until 2018 with Manchester United.
