Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger sent a shout out to his former Germany national teammate Lukas Podolski following his retirement from international football.

Schweinsteiger won the 2014 World Cup alongside Podolski and shared a picture alongside the Galatasaray striker on his Twitter account.

Schweinsteiger and Podolski will receive an official send-off for their services to the Germany national team with a farewell game, the German FA (DFB) has revealed.

The United veteran will be given the chance to play his farewell game on August 31 against Finland at  Borussia Park in Monchengladbach but Podolski – who is currently injured – will be unavailable and as a result his match will be played at a later date.

Podolski was the third highest goal scorer in German but hasn’t scored a goal for the national team in a competitive game in more than four years.

Schweinsteiger could end up joining Podolski at Galatasaray as he is being forced out by his current club.

AMK revealed that the Lions want Schweinsteiger on a loan move and are willing to pay up to £3 million toward his annual salary.

Schweinsteiger does however, have another two-years remaining on his current deal worth £14 million according to the Sun making the Lions offer a more attractive option than paying him to play in the reserves.
