Man United midfield icon already facing stunningly ruthless Mourinho chop (not Mata)

Schweinsteiger

Radamel Falcao. Angel Di Maria. The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been forced to watch some of the biggest names in world football flop at the Theatre of Dreams recently. 

A bitter pill to swallow for a team that once boasted the likes of Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo and Carlos Tevez in a truly barnstorming period.

Now, the Sun report the club are actively trying to sell World Cup winning midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger just a year after he moved.

The 31-year old Bayern Munich icon arrived at Old Trafford after calling an end to an illustrious career with the Bavarian giants, though has struggled for form and fitness.

Doubts about his fitness were raised by Pep Guardiola, who will takeover over at Manchester City of course, upon his departure from the Allianz Arena and it appears those fears have been realised by the Red Devils.

He made 31 appearances for the club, though largely off the bench, and was only able to muster one goal.

Now, new boss Jose Mourinho is understood to be keen to sell him on as he plots a major overhaul at the Theatre of Dreams.

Turkish giants Fenerbahce have been touted as a potential landing spot for a man who has widely been considered as one of the elite midfielders on the continent for much of the last decade.

Will Bastian Schweinsteiger be a Manchester United player next season?
