New York Red Bulls not interested in Man United's Bastian Schweinsteiger

New York Red Bulls are not interested in bringing Manchester United's Bastian Schweinsteiger to MLS.

Oliver Mintzlaff, the head of global soccer at New York Red Bulls, told Bild although the midfielder is a big talent he is not a player they anticipate signing.

"Schweinsteiger is a great player who has had an amazing career," Mintzlaff told Bild. "But there are no talks [over a move to New York Red Bulls]. He is not an issue for us and he will not become an issue."

The former Germany international has been linked with a move to the U.S. since falling out of favour at United under Jose Mourinho.

MLS commissioner Don Garber has encouraged the speculation by telling kicker that Schweinsteiger would be welcomed "with open arms."

"We know him from the 2014 World Cup, when he played against the USA," Garber said. "Plus he played an All-Star game here with Bayern. We are keeping a close eye on his situation."
