Bastian Schweinsteiger has hinted that his long-term future remains at Bayern Munich as he continues to be linked with a move to Manchester United.
The Germany midfielder and World Cup winner is one of the most successful players in Bayern’s history, winning eight Bundesliga titles, seven DFB-Pokal medals and the UEFA Champions League in 2013.
Schweinsteiger made just 15 league starts last season, though, and was reported to be interested in a move to Old Trafford, where he would be reunited with former Bayern boss Louis van Gaal.
However, the 30-year-old appears to have poured cold water on the idea he could leave the Allianz Arena – stating there is still plenty for him to achieve at Bayern.
“I really would like to win the Champions League again, but also play as successful as the last couple of years,” he told Sport 1 during the shooting of an advert for Funny Frisch.
“We have won the league title three times in a row. I think no team ever made it four times. That is a motivation.
“If you have won big titles like the Champions League or the World Cup a lot of people think ‘now he has enough’, but I see it completely different.
“I feel fine and I am ready to play on the top-level for three more years. That is my goal.”
Schweinsteiger is also targeting more success with Germany at next year’s European Championship in France.
“We have the European Championship in 2016,” he added. “That is a big goal, not only for me but for the whole football nation of Germany. That’s what you work for.”
