Will Manchester United get Boateng over the line?
Apparently, Manchester United and Bayern München discussed the transfer of Jerome Boateng before last night's test match.
Did Jerome Boateng play his last game for Bayern München last night? The centre-back played 45 minutes in Bayern München's 1-0 win against Manchester United in a test match.
Bild understands that representatives from Manchester United contacted Bayern regarding a possible transfer of Boateng before the game with 'The Red Devils' likely hoping to get the deal over the line before the England transfer window closes on August 9.
Kicker also reported last night that Manchester United are interested in the signing of the former Manchester City defender.
"My CEO has known for a long time what I want. I know that he is doing the best he can for me, and I still have a few days left to see what happens," Manchester United manager José Mourinho told Bild night.
Bayern München are said to want €50 million for Boateng who has also been linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain. It's in the advantage of the French champions that the transfer window will not close until August 31 in France.
Last night, Niko Kovac won his first game as Bayern coach at the Allianz Arena as Bayern took a 1-0 win thanks to a goal from Javi Martinez in the 59th minute.
