Tymoschuk, 31, has struggled to break into the Bayern team since his arrival from Zenit St Petersburg last summer and, with Bastian Schweinsteiger and Mark van Bommel both having impressed of late, Van Gaal has suggested he should look for another club.

"Tymoschuk's prospects are not very bright," he told Kicker. "Schweinsteiger is in the form of his life, Van Bommel is the captain. It looks tough.

"If a player doesn't play or doesn't have bright prospects then I would leave if I were them. I will not say to anybody who wants to leave that he is not allowed to, apart from my captain and three or four other players."
