Bastian Schweinsteiger could be the first high-profile departure following the arrival of Jose Mourinho at Manchester United with Turkish club Besiktas interested in signing the midfielder on a season-long loan. The midfielder endured an injury plagued debut season in the Premier League and is unlikely to be offered regular first-team football under the Portuguese manager at Old Trafford in the upcoming campaign.

The Germany international played just four times since the turn of the year following a spate of knee injuries and faces a battle with a number of players for a place in the United midfield. Ander Herrera, Marouane Fellaini, Morgan Schneiderlin and Michael Carrick are the other players at the manager's disposal and could be ahead of the former Bayern Munich star.

According to Turkish Football, Besiktas have held talks with the 20-time English champions over a loan deal for the midfielder, as they search for a high-profile signing to begin life at their newly constructed stadium next season. Schweinsteiger is currently on holiday following his stint with his national team at the recently concluded European Championships and is likely to return midway through the club's pre-season campaign.

However, according to the Sun, the Red Devils could face a huge bill to get rid of the midfielder, who still has two years left to run on his current deal. United will have to fork out around £14m ($18.4m) to axe the midfielder this summer, unless a club makes a bid to sign him on a permanent basis.

Meanwhile, according to Scottish publication Daily Record, there are other players in the United first-team squad facing uncertain an future at the club. Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind are two players, who are facing a possible exit this summer, while Juan Mata's future has also been questioned as it was Mourinho who sold him to the Red Devils during his second stint as the Chelsea manager in 2014.
