Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is unhappy at how Bastian Schweinsteiger is being treated by Manchester United.
Schweinsteiger has been told that he can leave Old Trafford, just a year after joining from Bayern Munich, with the Germany international currently training with the Under-23 squad amid reports that he is no longer allowed use the first-team dressing room.
Rummenigge is upset at how Schweinsteiger has been treated and has warned future signings to think long and hard before making the decision to move to United.
"I could hardly believe when I read it," Rummenigge told Bild. "This never happened before at Bayern Munich and never will happen.
"In the future players will think twice before joining such clubs, who treat them more radically when they want to get rid of a player than a club like Borussia Dortmund or Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga would do.
"It seems like this is the price players have to pay if they join these clubs."
Schweinsteiger made 13 Premier League starts for United last season as a knee injury kept him out for several months.
