Schweinsteiger urges Man Utd striker Ibrahimovic to join him in MLS

Bastian Schweinsteiger believes former Manchester United team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be wise to join him in MLS.

World Cup winner Schweinsteiger left United last month to join Chicago Fire and already has two goals in his first four games.

Schweini: Man Utd move 'the right one'

Ibrahimovic's future at United remains up in the air and he may have played his last game for Jose Mourinho's men having suffered significant knee ligament damage in their Europa League win over Anderlecht last week.

The Swede has scored 28 goals in his first season at United and Schweinsteiger thinks a switch to MLS makes sense for Ibrahimovic.

Asked by Sport1 if Ibrahimovic should move to the United States, Schweinsteiger replied: "Definitely. Players like him are certainly very important in a league like MLS.

"He's a very professional sportsman and really gives you a lot of quality on the field.

"He's got a really, really good eye and that really impressed me."
