The family of Bayern Munich star Bastian Schweinsteiger want to see him move to England.

Bayern supremo Karl-Heinz Rummenigge declared this morning they would hold the midfielder to his contract through to 2012.

However, German sources say Bayern claim a deal can be done in January if favourites Manchester United bid around £25m - but they have not given up hope on Schweinsteiger just yet.

A contract offer worth £140,000-a-week sits on the table waiting to be signed.

In the meantime, Schweinsteiger admits his brother is constantly nagging him about joining United - even as early as next month.
