Bayern stars oppose club plan to sell Boateng

Man Utd transfer news Jerome Boateng has called Jose Mourinho to reject a move

GETTY Man Utd transfer news Jerome Boateng has called Jose Mourinho to reject a move

According to the German media, the German defender reportedly called Jose Mourinho to inform him of his decision.

Pavard is said to stand for Bayern's new generation next to German worldwide Sule, who is the first choice to replace Boateng should the 29-year-old leave. Former Dutch global Arjen Robben has warned the club's leaders not to underestimate Boateng's value to the team. It certainly feels like a substantial fee for a player who's not played his best football for the best part of two years and so Bayern Munich may be wise to lower their asking price.

Boateng himself has also expressed his desire to keep his options of moving overseas, open for the time being.

Boateng, however, could still move to PSG where new head coach Thomas Tuchel is reported to have been in contact with ahead of the 2018 World Cup. The Red Devils only began his pursuit in the weekend in a bid to reinforce more to their back-line before the culmination of the transfer day deadline.

The Germany star has rejected the chance to join Manchester United and continue at Bayern Munich, reports Bild.

The clash will also serve as a reunion for Bayern coach Niko Kovac, who lead Frankfurt to the DFB Pokal title last season, beating his current team in the final.

For Boateng's move to PSG to go through, the French outfit first need to sort out their Financial Fair Play issues before any type of deal can be agreed.

Kicker later also reported that former PSG coach Unai Emery's present side Arsenal have also set their sights on the Germany global.

While some have suggested that joining the star-studded PSG side would enhance the image-conscious Boateng's marketing appeal, others say that playing in the English Premier League would result in more global exposure for the German worldwide.

"The manager is obviously not happy about the signings he hasn't been able to make and not having certain players available on their pre-season tour, which isn't nice to hear if you are a young kid trying to make your mark on the fringes of the squad".
