Bastian Schweinsteiger has been named in Manchester United’s Premier League squad.The German has not featured under Jose Mourinho and had been told he can leave Old Trafford.
But a move failed to materialise for the 31-year-old, who may now get a second chance under Mourinho – reports Manchester Evening News.Also listed in United’s squad is Sadiq El-Fitouri. The 21-year-old was signed from Salford City – owned by former United players Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes – in January 2015 and has been a regular in Warren Joyce’s reserve team.
He is yet to make a senior appearance but signed a new one-year deal in the summer.New signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba are also in the squad while the Premier League have confirmed Pogba counts as a ‘homegrown’ player.
Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are both included on the list of Under-21 players due to their age along with academy arrivals Tahith Chong, Nishan Burkart and Joshua Bohui.
