Can Schweinsteiger Win The World Cup With Chicago Fire

Second Manchester United star closing in on Summer MLS move

Bastian Schweinsteiger could follow Ibrahimovic to MLS this summer with Chicago Fire interested

Bastian Schweinsteiger seems destined to finish his career in MLS with reports linking him with a move stateside refuse to go away as the Manchester United midfielder is once again being targeted by the Chicago Fire, according to Guillermo Rivera.

Schweinsteiger has fallen down the pecking order at United – featuring just four times this season in all competitions – and will surely be allowed to leave at the end of the season, despite the fact he has one more year remaining on his contract with the club.

The Red Devils are believed to be willing to terminate the German legend’s contract if a suitable offer is presented to the player and so he would be able to join on a free transfer from July 1.

Chicago Fire are thought to be keeping close tabs on the former Bayern Munich hero, even though they now have two of Major League Soccer’s best holding midfielders in Juninho and Dax McCarty following a busy winter of transfer activity.

If he does complete a move to MLS, Schweinsteiger could follow his current United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic across the pond, as the striker has been offered a pay rise if he decides against staying in Manchester to instead join LA Galaxy in the coming months.

Unlike Ibrahimovic, Schweinsteiger is not thought to have been offered more money to move to the United States and will instead have to accept his salary dropping from £140,000 per week to around £90,000, which works out as roughly $3.6 million per MLS season.

It is unclear just how much contact there has been between Chicago and the 32-year-old World Cup winner, although it is looking increasingly likely he will make the switch to MLS this year so don’t be surprised to see him pen a pre-contract agreement in the coming weeks.

Do you think Bastian Schweinsteiger would be a good signing for the Chicago Fire?

Would love to see one of my absolute favorite Germans Stateside.

I'm not a huge fan of the MLS being the place where Euro Stars go to retire, but that's the culture the league has created.

I feel like this happens with a lot of non top tier leagues though.  But MLS still has enough young talent and the majority of USMNT is still from us.

Idk...he'd be a name, but I'm not sure big enough to garner what they will likely pay him.

There are surely better young US players looking for a starting berth?

I totally forgot he exists. What has he been doing all season?

Winning irrelevant titles and playing with the reserves of a small town club :ph34r:

Lots of burger joints and tennis tournaments for him to enjoy.

You'd find more pizza and hotdog joints in Chicity.

People act like he was some form of Demi God. The fat prick could have left in summer but chose the money and the bench, swanning around the world after Ana. Went downhill in my estimation. Mourinho is to blame as well, but look at Joe Hart. Cosumate professional, knew he wasn't wanted and moved on.

He's going to a team that doesn't need him. What a bad move for Chicago and a bad look for the MLS.

Pfft, hahaha. That is like saying 'meat pies are shite' when all you've had is a frozen one from the grocery. Or 'beer is awful' when the only beer you've had is Budweiser.

Trust the one you posted is pretty awful but depending on what Pizzeria you go to you can purchase some cracking deep dish. They really aren't that much bigger than thick crust pizza anyway.

I wonder if he will play on turf....the endless list of twats that refuse to play in Vancouver cus of it being turf is annoying. I think i baught tickets to see the NYRB every year in the dim hope of seeing Henry. Yet the bastard played on turf in Portland for the allstar game a few years back.

Yes, that question was embarrassing, but the fact that a reporter was allowed in the press conference who clearly doesn't know the sport, is just pure ignorance.
