Chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted that Bayern Munich will only sell Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer if the World Cup winner asks to leave.
The 31-year-old is believed to be one of Manchester United’s top targets, but Rummenigge has stressed that Bayern would be reluctant to sell their long-serving midfielder.
And Schweinsteiger has not yet given any indication that he wants out of the Allianz Arena.

Rummenigge is quoted by the Daily Mail as saying: “I don’t know if the story has weight. But from our point of view it’s clear: we would only consider a transfer if Bastian were to confront us with a concrete wish. That’s not the case.”
Schweinsteiger, who succeeded Philipp Lahm as Germany captain following their 2014 World Cup triumph, has won eight Bundesliga titles, seven German Cups and the Champions League in his 13 years in the Bayern first team.
