Germany star Bastian Schweinsteiger claims he could leave Bayern Munich this summer to move to the Premier League.
The 23-year-old winger was sent off in Germany's 2-1 defeat to Croatia in the group stages of Euro 2008, but returned from suspension to net the opening goal in the 3-2 win over Portugal as the pre-tournament favourites progressed to the last four.
Schweinsteiger is approaching the final year of his contract at Bundesliga champions Bayern, and although new boss Jurgen Klinsmann is keen to keep him in Bavaria, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards.
"I may stay with Bayern and the coach has promised to be supportive of whatever decision I make," Schweinsteger told the Sunday Mail.
"England does have a good appeal as it is one of the world's best leagues.
"I've always wanted to play there and we'll see if it happens this year."
