Manchester United On Alert As Bayern Munich Confirm Star May Leave
Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly been put on alert after Bayern Munich confirmed that one of their star players is considering leaving the club in this transfer window.
Last month, Germany international Jerome Boateng admitted that he was looking at the possibility of playing elsewhere in the upcoming season as he feels it may be time for a new challenge.
According to Manchester Evening News, the former Manchester City centre-back is being monitored closely by the Red Devils, who are said to be looking to sign a defender.
On Thursday, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed that the Bundesliga champions are open to offers for the defender, even though they would like to keep him.
"His thoughts about leaving Bayern still exist, as his agent has told me," Rummenigge told Sport Bild.
"We know that this topic might be approaching. When a club is interested, and Jerome says that he wants to join this club, we will consider it.
"I do not hide the fact that we have a financial threshold, but it will not be low for sure. However, I know that Jerome is thinking about leaving."
The 29-year-old has made 258 appearances for the Bavarian club so far, scoring eight goals and assisting a further 20 strikes.
