Santos head coach Dorival Junior has said he held discussions with the Brazilian club’s board about the possibility of signing Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
After making 18 Premier League appearances last season, the 32-year-old Schweinsteiger has not featured for United since Jose Mourinho took over from Louis van Gaal this year.
“I told them that we should try to get a big name in world football, or at least send an invitation,” Xinhua quoted Dorival as saying after his team’s 2-0 loss to Flamengo on Sunday.
“It was just a recommendation … It won’t hurt us to try. We didn’t only speak about Schweinsteiger but other players too. A player like that can obviously lift the level of the team, but he has to come with an objective and an appetite.”
Schweinsteiger was made to train with the club’s reserves for large parts of the season but was included in the squad for United’s 1-1 draw with West Ham United on Sunday.
