German midfielder Bastain Schweisteiger is poised to link up with MLS side Chicago fire next week from Manchester United. After being frozen by the Red Devils, Bastian has decided to turn to the Men In Red.
The German midfielder has departed Manchester United to sign with Chicago Fire. Schweinsteiger, 32, is expected to link up with his new club next week after signing a designated player contract that guarantees him $4.5 million in 2017, according to the Chicago Tribune.
-Throughout my career, I've always sought opportunities where I hoped to make a positive impact and to help make something great. My move to Chicago Fire is no different. Through my conversations with Nelson and Pauno, I'm convinced by the club’s vision and philosophy and I want to help them with this project, the German ace said in a statement to the Chicago Tribune.
Bastian scored 2 goals this season for Manchester United.
