The Bayern Munich veteran is being linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.
The Daily Mail reported that Schweinsteiger, who played under Louis van Gaal at Bayern Munich, could be set to leave Bayern after struggling for form in recent times.
'Schweini' has been linked with United in the past and of course knows Louis van Gaal from their time at Bayern together.
He has played 109 times for Germany and has played in nearly 500 games for the club in a career spanning back to 1998.
Now one Bundesliga expert is suggesting the deal might happen.
The 46-year-old Norwegian ended his playing days outside of his homeland in Germany, which led him to a career in German television.
He is best known for announcing the Mesut Ozil to Arsenal transfer before it was well known elsewhere.
He stated this on the topic of the German legend through his Twitter account yesterday.
Not sure! But Bayern have to kill a darling or two this summer. To reinvent themselves. Maybe Bastian? https://t.co/jlDnbBCiwM— Jan Aage Fjortoft (@JanAageFjortoft) May 21, 2015
Whether United would want to bring in a 30-year-old at this point in their development under Van Gaal remains to be seen.
