According to a report in the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Fire have signed World Cup champion Bastian Schweinsteiger from Manchester United. 

Schweinsteiger, 32, joins MLS after an unsuccessful stint in Manchester United, making just 18 appearances since joining in 2015.

Schweinsteiger won the World Cup with Germany and comes now to MLS, signing a 1 year, $4.5 million dollar deal according to the Chicago Tribune. With fellow new additions Juninho and Dax McCarty in the center of Chicago's midfield, it remains to be seen just where the latest big name MLS signing will fit in with his new club. 

Schweinsteiger has taken to Twitter to say goodbye to the Manchester United fans.
