Manchester United has agreed to allow midfielder, Bastian Schweinsteiger leave to join MLS side Chicago Fire.
The former Germany captain is reported to have signed a one-year contract.
Schweinsteiger, who was signed by the Old Trafford club under ex-manager Louis van Gaal in July 2015, trained alone with United’s Under-23 side after Jose Mourinho took over as manager last summer.
Mourinho never hid his dislike for the player as he refused to play him. He, however, returned to the first-team and played his first game this season in an English Football League Cup win over West Ham on 30 November.
Commenting on his exit from Manchester United, he said: “I am sad to leave so many friends at Manchester United. But I am grateful to the club for allowing me the chance to take up this challenge. I have enjoyed working with the manager, players, and staff but I have to reserve special thanks to the fans. I will always remember their energy and their passion.”
