Bastian Schweinsteiger should make Manchester United ‘pay until his last day’, according to Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness.


The 32-year-old, who is yet to play a game since the arrival of Jose Mourinho as manager, has been strongly tipped to make a mega-money move to MLS side Chicago Fire.

Despite having repeatedly reiterated his desire to earn a place in the United first team, the World Cup winner is no closer to playing for United despite currently earning £180,000 per week at Old Trafford after swapping Bundesliga for the Premier League.

Given his treatment, Hoeness has urged the former Germany captain to punish United ‘for what they’ve done to him’.

‘If I were him, I would make the people in Manchester pay until his last day,’ Hoeness is quoted by ESPN.

‘That’s what this club [United] deserves for what they’ve done to him. They should be punished,’ Bayern Munich president added.

According to reports in GoalUSA, Schweinsteiger is currently in advanced negotiations with Chicago fire club in regards to the $5.5 million yearly offer but Hoeness believes the 32-year-old is closer to retirement.

‘From what I have heard, Basti’s on his way out of football,’ he said. ‘I know him well and I doubt he’s still got the fire left in him for one final major challenge.

‘After such a brilliant career, a player like him shouldn’t see out his career in a place like America. For me, America simply isn’t an alternative for a player of his calibre.
