Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is no longer training with the club’s under-23 side.

The former Germany international was told to train away from the first team after Jose Mourinho was appointed manager. He was forced to clear out his locker and train with the club’s second string. However, the Manchester Evening News claims that Schweinsteiger is no longer training with the youngsters and it isn’t clear if he is doing any training at all at the club’s Carrington complex.

Schweinsteiger posted an image on Twitter of himself in a gym on Thursday which is believed to be in Hale, just outside Manchester.

The MEN claims his training is scheduled for later in the day in order to avoid any contact with his former team-mates in the first team. The Twitter image was posted at just after 3pm on Thursday.

Schweinsteiger is expected to leave Old Trafford in January. A move to MLS appears to be on the cards. The North American pre-season begins in February with the 2017 fixtures expected to start in early March.
