FC Dallas shows interest in Bastian Schweinsteiger

The Manchester United midfielder lost his place in Jose Mourinho's lineup and the Major League Soccer side has one designated player spot available.

Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger desperately needs a new club, and FC Dallas may just have a spot for the exiled player.

After being dropped from Jose Mourinho's senior team prior to the start of the Premier League season, Schweinsteiger has been training with the club's U-23 reserve side. With no hope of playing in a meaningful match this season, a move to MLS would make sense for the former Germany national team captain.

FC Dallas president Dan Hunt appears to be a big fan of Schweinsteiger, telling SPOX: "He is an incredible player. I always admired him and the success that his teams had. That is no coincidence, he is a winner."

But will FC Dallas, which has an open designated player slot available, actually make a move after the MLS roster freeze is lifted following the MLS Cup?

"That is difficult to predict. At the moment we only have space for one designated player and we wanted to fill this with a striker. Maybe it changes, we will see.“

Schweinsteiger spent 13 seasons with Bayern Munich before moving to Manchester United in 2015. He appeared in 28 matches for the club last season under coach Louis van Gaal, but quickly lost his spot in the lineup after Mourinho was hired over the summer. 

FC Dallas is currently leading MLS with 53 points through 31 games.
