Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out the possibility of Bastian Schweinsteiger returning to Bayern Munich this summer.

Schweinsteiger, 32, faces an uncertain future at Manchester United after being left out of Jose Mourinho's squad for both the preseason tour of China and Wayne Rooney's testimonial.

Sky sources understand Schweinsteiger is one of several players United are open to selling this summer.

On Monday, Schweinsteiger was reportedly ordered to clear out his locker in United's first-team dressing room, with newspaper reports suggesting he has been told to train with the reserves by Jose Mourinho.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge suggested that the door could be open for him to return to Bavaria and that sentiment was echoed by club captain Philipp Lahm but a move for Schweinsteiger is not in Ancelotti's plans.

Ancelotti said: "In football there is no if. (Signing) Schweinsteiger is not in our ideas.
