United boss Jose Mourinho does not have plans for the former Germany international next season and has not used him during the pre-season friendlies.
The recently married midfielder has not exactly had the best honeymoon period. He has not been included in Mourinho’s pre-season tour squad either and looks certain for a summer exit.
The 32-year-old does however, have another two-years remaining on his current contract which the Sun report would have made his £14 million.
Per the source, Schweinsteiger does want to be compensated for his loss of earnings should he leave.
The Express report that Besiktas are interested in the World Cup winner but a source close to Besiktas told Turkish-football.com that the club a move looks unlikely considering his current wages. Schweinsteiger would have to agree to a pay cut if he were to accept a deal from Besiktas but considering he would not have to pay tax on his earnings he would still be in for a lucrative deal.
Besiktas are being closely monitored by FFP and do not want fall into hot water considering Istanbul rivals have been banned from European competition this season as a result of their finances.
The Eagles did win the league title last season booking a place in the Champions League group stages and with Fenerbahce bowing out in the play-off round they will be in for an additional €10 million windfall before playing a single game.
