Bayern Munich great Franz Beckenbauer says midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger should snub any offers made by Manchester United.
The 30-year-old is a target for boss Louis van Gaal according to reports in England but Der Kaiser feels that the Germany international should spent at least one more season at the Allianz Arena.
"I would advise him not to go to England. He can stay here as well. This challenge, at his age, it’s not what he needs," Beckenbauer told Sky Sports.
“I would play one or two more years in Munich, at this high level.
"And then, if he still wants to and if he still feels like playing football is the thing, he can make a step back and maybe go to the USA.
“In New York, Cosmos is searching for players, also Red Bull. So I think if he, as a world champion, goes to New York or another club in the Major League Soccer, that would greatly improve the standing of football there."
