Reports in Spain have emerged this week that Spanish giants Real Madrid are considering a move for former Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.
According to a report from Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid could make a move for yet another former Bayern defender this summer after having already signed David Alaba, with Jerome Boateng now on the club’s radar.
The 32-year-old saw his ten-year association with Bayern Munich come to an end this summer after the record German champions decided not to renew his expiring contract. Boateng departed the Allianz Arena after having made over 350 appearances for the Bavarian giants during which he won a host of titles and trophies.
Los Blancos are looking to rebuild the core of their defence, having let club legend and captain Sergio Ramos leave on a free to French giants PSG, and seemingly sent World Cup-winning defender Raphael Varane to Manchester United. They have brought in Alaba from Bayern, and it appears they are keeping their eye on Boateng as well.
A member of the German 2014 World Cup-winning, Boateng has been approached by many clubs, including Real's La Liga rivals Sevilla who have had a look at the 32-year-old as a potential replacement for Jules Kounde who looks set to leave Sevilla.
