Man Utd include Schweinsteiger in Premier League squad

Manchester United have named Bastian Schweinsteiger in their 25-man Premier League squad.

The 32-year-old World Cup winner was told by new United boss Jose Mourinho recently that he was unlikely to play for the Old Trafford club again.

The former Germany captain retired from international football earlier this week after 24 goals and 121 caps.

All 20 top-flight clubs had to submit their 25-man squads to the Premier League by 16:00 BST on Thursday.

Under-21 players - like Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial - are eligible over and above the limit of 25 players per squad.

Schweinsteiger, who signed a three-year contract in July 2015, has trained alone and with the under-23s since Mourinho took charge in the summer.
