Manchester United are reportedly set to ditch Bastian Schweinsteiger after one injury-hit season at Old Trafford. The 31-year-old midfielder was a peripheral figure at the club during his first season in England, but has returned from injury in time to play for Germany at Euro 2016.

Jose Mourinho was recently appointed as United's new manager and the Premier League-winning boss does not see Schweinsteiger as part of his plans going forward, according to the Sunday Mirror.

Schweinsteiger joined United from Bayern Munich last summer but struggled to stay fit during his first 12 months in England. It is thought Mourinho wants to sign a younger, more dynamic player to replace Schweinsteiger at United.

The German international is one of the top-earning players at United and his proposed exit could free up funds for Mourinho to overhaul United's much-maligned squad. The Old Trafford club have been strongly linked with the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Eric Bailly in recent months.

The United boss is rumoured to have around £200m ($290.3m) to spend this summer, as he looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League in 2017.
