Man Utd star dropped from squad ahead of Galatasaray clash, Turkish giants on alert

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has not been included in the 23-man squad that will take on Galatasaray in Sweden over the weekend.

The Germany international midfielder is facing the prospect of getting axed along with eight other United players according to the Sun.

Schweinsteiger was not included in the United squad that travelled to China either but that was down to being on his honeymoon.

The latest reports from the Sun suggest that the World Cup winner is on his way out over the summer.

The Express report that Besiktas are keen to snap up the 31-year-old midfielder in a bid to strengthen their midfielder going into the Champions League campaign.

Besiktas will be hoping United allow the midfielder to join as a free transfer or for a small fee considering the club are under the watch of FFP.

The full squad is as follows:

De Gea, Johnstone, Romero, Valencia, Darmian, Jones, Rojo, Bailly, Blind, Shaw, Herrera, Fellaini, Mkhitaryan, Young, Schneiderlin, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Memphis, Ibrahimovic, Rooney, Martial, Rashford.
