Bastian Schweinsteiger's future at Manchester United remains uncertain following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as manager, but Joachim Low has now confirmed that it will be decided following the conclusion of the European Championships currently underway in France. The German midfielder had a poor debut season in the Premier League after struggling for form and fitness throughout the campaign, and it is unclear if the Portuguese manager will retain his services next season.
The 31-year-old midfielder missed most of the season due to injury making just two appearances in the league since the turn of the year. Schweinsteiger made a return from injury during Germany's opening Euro 2016 game against Ukraine – it was his first competitive appearance since March, when he suffered a medial ligament injury while on international duty.
The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan boss is expected to oversee a massive squad rebuild during the summer transfer window, with a number of incomings and outgoings expected. He has already made his first signing with central defender Eric Bailly arriving from Villarreal in a reported £25m ($35.4m) deal.
The midfield area is said to be the manager's main priority with Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata among others facing uncertain an futures at the club. Michael Carrick is the only midfielder who is not under threat after Mourinho sanctioned a one-year contract extension for the veteran midfielder.
Mourinho has been linked with moves for Paul Pogba and Marco Verratti in recent weeks, which could put a number of midfield players' futures in doubt. Low, however, has indicated that Schweinsteiger is very relaxed with regards to his club future as they are currently only focused on Germany's Euro 2016 campaign and their upcoming Group C clash against Poland.
"I prefer to get my information straight from the horse's mouth. Bastian and I exchanged thoughts about several things in the past few days but we talked about his position and his fitness. We had no room for transfers in those talks," Low said, ahead of Germany's clash against Poland, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
"At this point, it does not interest me. Bastian will clarify his situation with his new coach after the European Championships. To me, he appears to be very relaxed," the German coach added.
