Louis van Gaal will meet again one of the important Bayern Munich players who has decided to end his career in Germany. He is Bastian Schweinsteiger.
The 30-year-old midfielder has been in Bayern for 17 seasons, in fact all his professional career. Now he wants to end his life as soccer player discovering a different league. In concrete, the Premier League. He will join Mancherster United, where he a former Bayern coach, Louis Van Gaal (2009-2011) is waiting for him.
This way, Pep Guardiola will lose one of the key players and one of the most loved footballers by the fans. However, the former Barcelona coach hopes to have more luck with injuries and be able to count on important midfielders like Thiago Alcántara, who stayed in the nursery for too long last season.
