Bayern Munich midfielder Schweinsteiger puts Chelsea on red alert

Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger has baulked at committing to the German giants next season.

Schweinsteiger has been linked with Chelsea in recent weeks.

"It was often the case in the first half of the season that I would mis-place a pass in the first 20 minutes and I would be whistled at immediately," he said.

"There were even whistles for me at the annual general meeting and that hurt."

With that in his mind, Schweinsteiger cannot guarantee that he will still be a Bayern player next season.

"You never know what happens after a World Cup," he told the Bild newspaper.

"I am really happy that we played such a good season, but to say now that I will always play for Bayern Munich would be wrong.

"Then if you do actually move, it would be an unfair proclamation to make to the fans."

Schweinsteiger admitted that the Barclays Premier League would be particularly attractive as a potential destination, should he choose to leave Bayern.

"When things were not going well, we were being whistled at immediately in the Allianz Arena, but that sort of thing does not happen in England," he added.

"I would like to have the whole stadium behind us even in difficult times."
