Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has failed to rule out leaving Allianz Arena in the summer transfer window.
The 30-year-old has another year left on his deal wit the Bavarians, but seeing as he is no longer an undisputed starter, the Germany star appears to be considering his options.
Schweinsteiger has been heavily linked with a summer exit and he now admits that is a realistic possibility.
“I have agreed with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, that we sit down together in the summer,” the midfielder told reporters after the international friendly between Germany and USA.
“I am in no hurry and have another year left on my contract. It is still early in the summer.”
Bastian Schweinsteiger is one of those players that have never left the club where they had come through the youth ranks, but everything suggests the lengthy spell in Munich is coming to an end.
The experienced midfielder has enjoyed some very successful years with Bayern, lifting eight Bundesliga trophies, seven DFB Pokal titles and winning the Champions League in the 2012/2013 season.
Schweinsteiger has also scored 23 goals in 110 Germany caps, helping die Mannschaft win the 2014 World Cup.
