Bayern: Robben underlines Boateng's importance to club

Man Utd transfer news Bayern Munich Jerome Boateng

But according to the Guardian, Boateng wants to win the Champions League again and doesn't think United are capable.

Here's where United stand on their various defensive candidates with less than 24 hours to the deadline.

The reigning Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain and particularly their German coach Thomas Tuchel are reported to have an interesting in signing Boateng.

Bayern Munich stars and coach Niko Kovac do not want to let go of central defender Jerome Boateng even as the club management is in favour of selling the 29-year-old German global this summer. 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.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to sign Boateng, but the Red Devils have been unwilling to meet Bayern Munich's demands and the Premier League transfer window shutting on Thursday means there is little scope for the complex negotiations which would need to take place.

Barca are said to have seen a bid involving towering defender Mina, midfielder Andre Gomes and around £45million rejected for a player that has had his ups and downs with Mourinho.

Kovac's first starting XI was as expected with James Rodriguez, Corentin Tolisso and Jerome Boateng all resting or injured and Bayern grabbed the lead in the 22nd minute.

That conversation has led to Boateng cooling his interest in a return to England, where he previsouly spent a single season with Manchester City.

Last season he suffered a hamstring injury in April, nearly causing him to miss Germany's dismal World Cup campaign in Russian Federation.

Boateng, 29, suffered muscle and tendon injuries over the past three Bundesliga campaigns, missing 27 games in total since December 2016. "It would make sense for the whole club if he comes back to earth a bit", Rummenigge told Bild in 2016.

The player stressed that the accusations were a great disappointment to him.
