Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger will not leave Old Trafford this summer despite being instructed to find a new club according to Sun.

Per the source, Schweinsteiger will remain on the Red Devils books and he is within his rights to do so considering he has another two-years left on his deal.

The Daily Star reported that United were looking to negotiate a severance package with Schweinsteiger.

Per the source, United could be forced into paying £17 million over the next two-seasons for a player that will play in the reserves.

The Red Devils reportedly want a cut-price £2 million deal with the 32-year-old but it remains to be seen if any club will match his wages.

An alternative is a loan move and Turkish giants have shown an interest in bringing in the former World Cup winner on a temporary move a source close to the club told

AMK report that the Istanbul giants are willing to pay up to half of Schweinsteiger’s salary.

Schweinsteiger won eight Bundesliga titles with Bayern and the Champions League in 2013 establishing himself as one of the greatest midfielders of his generation.

The experienced midfielder failed to settle in at United due to a series of injuries and recently appointed manager Jose Mourinho has no plans for him this season.
