Bastian Schweinsteiger could look into playing in the MLS but not before his Manchester United contract ends.
Schweinsteiger, who arrived at Old Trafford last summer from Bayern Munich, is tied to the 20-time English champions until 2018 and recently stated the Red Devils would be his last club in Europe.
The 32-year-old has been frozen out of the first team this season following the arrival of Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho and the midfielder is training with the youth team as things stand.
However, despite falling down the pecking order, the former Germany captain is still making himself available for selection which has endeared him to the United faithful.
Schweinsteiger has welcomed talk of a potential switch to the US but insists it will not be thought about in any great detail until his deal in England runs out.
“New York is a great city but I have a contract with United until 2018 and you know what the atmosphere is like at Old Trafford, and it’s my dream to run out there again,” he told Germany’s ZDF television. “I hope I get the chance to help the team again.”
