A year left on his deal, Bastian Schweinsteiger's  future at Bayern is as unclear as its ever been. A recent on camera interview that Sport1 released on Monday may have provided clarity at which way the Bayern Munich vice-captain may be leaning.

"I would love to win another Champions League, but I would like to play successfully like I did in past years. We become German champions three times, and I believe no team has accomplished the championship four times. That is a motivation."

The interview occurred while Schweinsteiger was shooting a commercial for a funny-frisch™ chips commercial, which occurred on May 22 according to tz-online. Since then, rumors have soared around his Bayern future, several reports linking the 31-year-old with a reunion with former manager Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

Sport1 reiterated Schweinsteiger's desires to sit down with Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge to discuss his future. Schweinsteiger stressed earlier this month he is not pressing to figure out his future, but did say he is still hungry to play for a few more years at a high level.

"When someone has won the big titles like the Champions League or the World Cup, many people think: 'now the player is satisfied.' But I absolutely don't see it that way," said Schweinsteiger. "I feel good and I am ready to play the next three years at the top level. That is my goal."
