The pair formed a strong bond after playing alongside each for the national team for so many years.

Schweinsteiger has been forced to train with United’s Under-23 side after being frozen out by boss Jose Mourinho.

The 32-year-old was named in United’s Premier League squad last week but the club are still desperate to remove his £200,000-a-week wages from the Old Trafford pay roll.

Schweinsteiger played just 13 times last term and was omitted from United’s Europa League squad.

Khedira insists: “I would never be in a situation that a club asks me to leave. A player with a great career does not deserve to eventually be told ‘Hey, you’re off.’

“I think the situation in Manchester is a shame, because Bastian is a player I’ve really looked up to.

“At the World Cup in 2010 he was very important for me. He was the boss. I was young and learned a lot playing next to him. And then he went on to be a great captain.”
