The Germany international departed the Allianz Arena for Old Trafford last summer but his compatriot and former team-mate is certain he will return once his career is over.
Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm believes Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is destined to return to the Bundesliga champions once he retires.
The 32-year-old joined Bayern as a youth team player in 1998 and only departed last season, joining Manchester United.
However, Lahm has little doubt that his compatriot will return to the club in a non-playing capacity once his career has ended.
“It is important to get players who achieved a lot involved,” Lahm told Sport Bild.
“Someone like Schweinsteiger is destined to work at Bayern again.
“He knows everyone here and knows about everything that is going on.”
Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, meanwhile, was quick to stress that the club are ready to offer the ex-Germany international an opportunity to return when the opportunity arises.
“We are happy to sit down with him if he ever expresses a desire to return to Bayern in a different role,” he added.
Schweinsteiger endured a difficult first season at United, partially due to ongoing injury problems, and there are doubts over his future at Old Trafford as reports claim he is not part of Jose Mourinho’s plans.
