Roberto Mancini appears determined to start the oldest midfield in Serie A history next season. Much has been written about Mancini’s unhealthy fascination with signing the 33-year-old Yaya Toure, and now Inter are being linked with manchester United’s 31-year-old midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Schweinsteiger joined United last summer for £6.5million from Bayern Munich, but the German international struggled to stay fit, spending 123 days on the sidelines last term.
The Germany international made only 31 appearances in all competitions for United and suffered knee ligament damage and a medial collateral injury, missing 24 games.
He has though recovered from that injury and is part of the German squad at this summers EURO 2016.
Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen to offload the Germany international, who is currently United’s top earner on £275,000 a week.
And according to CalcioMercatoWeb, Inter are prepared to offer Schweinsteiger an escape route from Old Trafford by taking him on loan for the 2016/17 season.
The report says Roberto Mancini is keen to bring him to the San Siro as he looks to strengthen his side for a domestic and Champions League push next term.
If he was to come to Stadio Giuseppe Meazza next season, Inter would need United to pay almost all of Schweinsteiger’s wages, as they are currently far out of Inter’s reach.
What do you think of Schweinsteiger? Do you think he could help Inter next season? Or can he still make an impact at Old Trafford?
