Jose Mourinho is reportedly prepared to sell one of Manchester United's highest earners for just £2 million (R37.4 million) to get him off the wage bill.
The Portuguese coach has frozen out Bastian Schweinsteiger, making him train with the club's U21s.
The 32-year-old apparently earns about £200 000 (R3.75 million) a week at Old Trafford, and still has two years left on his contract after joining United from Bayern Munich last year.
According to the Daily Mirror, the 2014 FIFA World Cup champion will not even feature for United's reserve team, as Mourinho does not want him to block the development of the club's youngsters.
On Wednesday, Schweinsteiger posted a message to his fans on Twitter, insisting he won't join another club in Europe and that he will be ready if the team needs him.
The midfielder made 31 appearances for the Red Devils last season, but largely failed to live up to expectations after lifting 22 trophies with Bayern.
The latest rumours link Schweinsteiger with a move to Major League Soccer in the US, but it remains to be seen if any team will make a bid.
