Deemed surplus to requirements, Bastian Schweinsteigers` situation doesn`t appear to sit comfortably with his previous club.

Schweinsteiger, now 32, has been training with the reserves as Manchester United seek to offload a player they only signed last summer.

Last night Old Trafford staged Wayne Rooney`s testimonial fixture, against Everton.

During the course of the ninety minutes Jose Mourinho chose to use twenty-two players but those twenty-two didn`t include Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Acutley aware of the situation after his club were linked with a romantic return of the player to the Allianz Arena, the Bayern Munich vice-chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has suggested that the treatment being dished out to Schweinsteiger could deter other players from joining Manchester United.

In quotes that have appeared in the German newspaper, Bild, Rummenigge is quoted as having remarked,

‘I could hardly believe it. One or two players are going to think long and hard in future about whether they want to go to such a club. Nothing like that has ever happened at Bayern Munich.’

Is he right to offer his opinion and if so is Rummenigge correct?

Your views would be greatly appreciated on this delicate subject matter.
