Out-of-favour Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is rumoured to have agreed terms with the MLS side Chicago Fire.
The Germany international still has a year left in his deal with the Old Trafford club, but is prepared to cut his stay in England short after falling completely out of sorts with manager Jose Mourinho.
Schweinsteiger was not included in Manchester United squad at the beginning of the season as Mourinho spoke openly about not wanting the Germany star in his team. Former Bayern Munich midfielder was even pushed into the U23 team, but kept his professional conduct, which earned him a recall to the first team in October.
The experienced midfielder only made four appearances for Red Devils this season and was already linked with a move away from the club in January, but a summer switch to the MLS is now on the cards.
According to growing reports from the United States which were built upon the November rumours from the outlets such as ESPN, Schweinsteiger has finally, after months of negotiations, agreed a two-year deal with the Chicago-based club worth $16.5 million.
