Off to Chicago it seems.Thought he might be handy in the run in with the Europa League.Fan favourite but not with Jose!

Interesting perhaps that his star has waxed and waned more or less contemporaneously with Wayne's.

I felt he had something to offer us. Even a bit part role, job sharing with Carrick perhaps?

I suppose sometimes your face just does not fit. I think this is the case here... appeared to be the ultimate pro and done his best to fight his way back, but it wasn't to be.
Good luck Basti

Class act. He never complained, never bitched. I'm sorry it didn't work out for him here. Wish him all the best in Chicago.

As far as the team is concerned, I couldn't care less.

A major disappointment given how incredible a player he was. I thought we had pulled off a major coup. It's sad to watch a player of that calibre crash and burn like that.

I even watched him in the Euros versus Italy. He was constantly crying out for the ball and by the second half - given how poor his first touch was - they had stopped passing it to him.

Good luck, Basti.

I think his time at United has been an absolute piss take, thankfully that's the wage bill reduced by millions per year.

Never understood all the fuss around Schweinsteiger. Not when I saw him play for Bayern or Germany, and certainly not when he turned out for us.

I won't be mourning the loss.

Contrary to the two posts preceding this one, I think Bastian performances in the United shirt have been very good. I think his showings have been better than Carrick's for example and I think he would have been a better option in midfield than Carrick. His fitness has been the one issue for me, but I think he would have rotated well with Carrick.

If you look at his performances and the teams performances with him in the team this season, I cannot understand why Jose used him so sparingly.
