"But I don't want to stay I'm the Fire's key player, I just want to play my part as much as I can - Chicago has very good baseball, ice hockey and American football teams - and hopefully soon soccer".

The 32-year-old is set to be unveiled by the Major League Soccer side at a press conference tonight (1500 local time).

Schweinsteiger illustrious football career continues at the MLS where he will be playing for the Chicago Fire.

"I can feel there is something going on and I want to help this club".

Former Bayern Munich and Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger is the latest superstar to move Stateside as he officially joined the Chicago Fire this week.

Despite featuring sparingly this season at Old Trafford, Schweinsteiger is confident he can make an impact in the United States, where he is determined to turn the Fire's fortunes around.
