Man Utd star set for exit but wages could prove stumbling block

Out-of-favour Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has been told to find another club after being banished to training with the reserve team according to the Manchester Evening News.

United boss Jose Mourinho does not have plans for the former Germany international next season and has not used him during the pre-season friendlies.

The recently married midfielder has not exactly had the best honeymoon period. He has not been included in Mourinho’s pre-season tour squad either and looks certain for a summer exit.

The 32-year-old does however, have another two-years remaining on his current contract which the Sun report would have made his £14 million.

Per the source, Schweinsteiger does want to be compensated for his loss of earnings should he leave.

The Express report that Besiktas are interested in the World Cup winner but a source close to Besiktas told that the club a move looks unlikely considering his current wages. Schweinsteiger would have to agree to a pay cut if he were to accept a deal from Besiktas but considering he would not have to pay tax on his earnings he would still be in for a lucrative deal.

Besiktas are being closely monitored by FFP and do not want fall into hot water considering Istanbul rivals have been banned from European competition this season as a result of their finances.

The Eagles did win the league title last season booking a place in the Champions League group stages and with Fenerbahce bowing out in the play-off round they will be in for an additional €10 million windfall before playing a single game.
