The couple was joined by their parents as looked around the local houses in Chicago.

The German midfielder will earn £3.5m in his one-year deal with Chicago Fire.

During his unveiling, the former Manchester United midfielder revealed he is ready to make his first appearance for Chicago Fire.

"I am 32 years old. I am ready, but of course, I need more training sessions to have the right rhythm, to be where I want to see myself," Schweinsteiger said.

"My head is more than 100 percent. I feel quite comfortable. The session was pretty intense today and I could do it, so that was good.
