Germany star hints at move away from Bundesliga in future...
Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has insisted that the idea of a move abroad "excites" him and that he is not "married" to the Bundesliga giants.

The German international, who has been one of the stand-out performers of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, is reportedly being tracked by some of Europe's top clubs with both Real Madrid and Chelsea said to monitoring the 25-year-old's situation closely.

Despite suggesting he would be tempted by a move abroad, Schweinsteiger maintained that he is content at Bayern and that he respects his contract with the Bavarian outfit.

"There are always a few offers, but I have a contract with Bayern until 2012 and I respect the contract and the club," he told Bild am Sonntag.

"I know that there is something great at Bayern. We didn't reach the UEFA Champions League final without good reason - and to win it is my ambition.

"To end this talk I will just say that I am not married to Bayern.

"The Bundesliga is great, and has become more important, but if I were to move on then, of course, the idea of going abroad is what excites me."
