New Delhi: The big shuffles in Manchester United is still occurring as manager Jose Mourinho mentioned in a press conference that Andreas Pereira would be joining La Liga side Granada on loan. On the other hand, things were not so pleasant when Mourinho talked about Bastian Schweinsteiger, who he claims has been forsaken by Bayern Munich.
The German player announced his retirement after this summer's European Championship and will soon be seen the last time on pitch with Germany.
Jose Mourinho, after massive transfer deals this season, is not keen on keeping Schweinsteiger in his squad and has admitted it quiet openly that Bayern Munich can take him back. Bayern president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had earlier claimed that he could hardly believe the treatment being meted out to the German player by Mourinho. Not a stranger to controversies, Mourinho said this at the press conference, "I thought after I read some quotes from people at Bayern Munich that they would run to Manchester to bring him (Schweinsteiger) back, but no, that did not happen. I am quite surprised that Mr Rummennigge is not here now to take him back."
Schweinsteiger has said that he will be ready to play for the club whenever the club needs him.
As for Andreas Pereira, he will be presented to the media next week and will start to train with Granada from tomorrow. Granada also has signed a loan deal for Barcelona midfielder Sergi Samper.
