Bastian Schweinsteiger facing Man Utd axe

Bastian Schweinsteiger is facing the axe at Manchester United.

The Sunday Mirror says Schweinsteiger is facing a battle to save his United career, with new manager Mourinho closing in on the world record £100million capture of Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Mourinho has admitted several of his current squad will be offloaded before the season gets under way next month, and the 31-year-old former Bayern Munich midfielder is set to head that exodus.

Injury-plagued Schweinsteiger made just 13 league appearances last season after a £14m move from Bundesliga giants Bayern and has featured only three times since the turn of the year — his last outing coming as a sub in the Manchester derby in March.
