Bastian Schweinsteiger says a move to a MLS club is an option if he cannot regain a place in the first team of Manchester United

DUESSELDORF, Germany — Bastian Schweinsteiger says a move to a Major League Soccer club in the United States is an option if he cannot regain a place in the first team of Manchester United.

The midfielder spoke on Tuesday, one day before his 121st and farewell match for Germany in a friendly against Finland. The outgoing captain announced his retirement from international duty after a loss to France in the semifinals of the European Championship last month.

Schweinsteiger helped Germany win the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

But at club level, he has been dropped from United's first team by new coach Jose Mourinho.

"I don't have a problem with Mourinho," Schweinsteiger said, adding he's had a "good exchange" with the coach.

"Let's wait and see what happens in September, October," he added.

The 32-year-old former Bayern Munich stalwart said he had no intention of quitting football yet, and he believed he was good enough for the English Premier League "if I get a fair chance."

"America is, of course, an option," Schweinsteiger added.

Schweinsteiger made his debut for Germany in 2004 and scored 24 times in 120 matches.
