Schweinsteiger Names The One Player He'd Like Bayern Munich To Sign

Bastian Schweinsteiger took time out from being asked whether he wants to win the World Cup, and taking pictures of fans with other Chicago Fire players, to offer his thoughts on the player he'd like to sign Bayern Munich sign.

The 2014 World Cup winner clearly still has a great affiliation with Bayern, who he won eight Bundesliga titles, seven DFB-Pokals and one Champions League with.

Carlo Ancelotti's side cruised to yet another domestic league title, but were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid at the semi-final stage.

Schweinsteiger doesn't see Bayern needing to many adjustments, but does pick out one player he'd like to see turn out at the Allianz Arena.

He went for Barcelona and Brazil superstar Neymar, who signed a new deal at the Camp Nou until 2021 in October.

Speaking to Goal, he said:

"That's difficult, but if you ask me which kind of player I would like to see in the Bayern Munich jersey then I would probably say I would like to see Neymar in a Bayern Munich jersey. But I don't know if he wants to."

Schweinsteiger rates Neymar incredibly highly and also forged quite the friendship with him, courtesy of a link with former Bayern and Brazil Dante.

"Actually, I'm also quite a fan of Neymar. Not only about his game style, but also his personality. (The connection) actually came from Dante. He was playing with him in the Selecao, and he wanted to have a shirt of mine so I gave Dante a shirt of mine for Neymar. Every time when we played against each other there was a lot of respect.

"I also remember in 2014 when we won the World Cup in Brazil and I met him during my vacation, it was a coincidence.Then we spent some hours or some days together so it was quite fun. He's a good guy. He's a typical Brazilian. His heart is good. He's a good person and, for me, one of the best players at the moment."

Since ending his dismal spell with Manchester United, Schweinsteiger is enjoying life in the MLS with Chicago Fire and has scored twice in his first five games.
