Bastian Schweinsteiger has finally been brought in from the cold at Manchester United, reports the Mirror.
There was no real reason for the German’s exodus at the club’s Carrington training ground, with Jose Mourinho forcing the World Cup winner to train with the reserves.

Schweini has now been allowed to train with the first team, even if it doesn’t seem likely he’ll be allowed back into the fold with them on the pitch.
United do have plenty of options in central midfield, so it’s not entirely unreasonable that the 32-year-old isn’t playing, especially as Mourinho did give him the chance to leave in the summer.
The Portuguese has all but confirmed that Schweinsteiger won’t play again in the famous red jersey.
Yet, while he’s still up for sale officially, it’s great to see him receiving the treatment he deserves from the club, who have already humiliated him by writing him off as an asset, excluding him from the Europa League squad, and most recently, leaving him out of their team photos.
