PHOTOS: Manchester United-linked Bastian Schweinsteiger back in team training for Bayern Munich

Manchester United-linked Bastian Schweinsteiger was back in team training for Bayern Munich on Tuesday, with former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso also going through the drills.

Bastian Schweinsteiger has been linked with a move for Manchester United, who will be pleased with the latest news on the midfielder’s fitness.

The Germany international has not featured in a single competitive match since the 2014 World Cup final in Brazil in the summer.

Schweinsteiger was back in training last month, but he was not deemed to be fit for match action. On Tuesday, the 30-year-old was back on the training pitch.

A world-class midfielder, Schweinsteiger trained with just nine Bayern players, as the rest are on international duty with their respective countries.

One of the Bayern players who was training on Tuesday was Xabi Alonso. The former Liverpool maestro joined the German champions from Real Madrid in the summer transfer window and has made a huge impact in the Bundesliga.

Below are the best pictures from Tuesday’s training session.
