Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that Bastian Schweinsteiger is flattered by the reported interest from Manchester United and that he will talk to him regarding his future once he is back in training.
His future was put under speculation after the club's sporting director Matthias Sammer revealed that his tenure at Bayern rests in his own hands and that he can move out of the club in the summer should he choose to.
His thoughts were reciprocated by manager Pep Guardiola, making it a difficult situation for the legendary midfielder, with only a year left in his current contract.
The Red Devils are close to securing a deal for Morgan Schneiderlin, according to the Mirror, but are interested in taking Schweinsteiger to Old Trafford to add more experience and flair to the squad should he be made available.
The player made 28 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring five goals in the process. He is likely to come in as a possible replacement for Michael Carrick, who has entered his mid-thirties and had his entire season plagued with injuries last year.
Rummenigge went on to add that Bayern's plans for the transfer window are still under discussion and that they will look to be active till the final day of the window, which expires on 31 August.
"I make no secret about it that, in our conversations, it sounds like he is flattered from the interest in England," the chairman said, as quoted by Goal.
"I talked to him during his vacation. We will meet each other, when he is back.
"Our plans are not finished yet. The window is open until August 31," he added.
The German has won everything during his time at Bayern and is also privy to the ways of Louis van Gaal under whom he has played during the Dutchman's brief stint at Bayern.
