ONE OF THE BEST

The Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is regarded as one of the best midfielders in the world. The 28-year-old has made close to 100 appearances for the German national team, while he has also have the incredible success with his club team as well.

As a result, he has been consistently linked with several clubs over the last few years, but he has rejected any advances to stay with the German club. Now, though, situation seems to have changed slightly because the player has recently admitted that he could leave Bayern Munich, but only after the expiry of his current deal.

Bayern Munich are no strangers to losing high quality players on free transfers especially after they have lost the former German international Michael Ballack a free transfer to Chelsea a few years ago. Schweinsteiger came through the ranks at Bayern Munich and he has a contract until 2016. He has said that he intends to fulfil his promise to the German club. During his time at Bavaria, the player has made more than 400 appearances for the club. He has also managed to lift five league titles during this period, although Champions League success has eluded him in the form of two disappointing finals.

"My contract with Bayern Munich runs until June 2016. I signed it with the intention to fulfil it. I can imagine all kinds of things after that. You cannot rule anything out in football," said the midfielder in a recent interview. In the past, the 28-year-old has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, and Inter Milan. The club has not shown any interest in reviving the deal for the midfielder given that it still has four years to run. The player will be 32 years of age by the time his current contract comes to an end.
