Man United, Arsenal, and PSG battle it out for Boateng


Three top European clubs are said to be in the running to sign Bayern Munich defender Jerome 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.

Paris Saint-Germain is linked with the 2010 World Cup victor.

In the 29-year-German global, Jose Mourinho would have an experienced head who can provide a boost in European competitions while also being a leader who the likes of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof could look up to.

Record champions Bayern are chasing yet another Bundesliga title and Robben did not predict who would offer the biggest challenge to their dominance. According to them, Boateng's conversation with the new Bayern manager Niko Kovac, influenced the 2014 World Cup winner's decision.

Boateng spent a season with Manchester City and fans speculated whether this could be the reason for his reluctance to move to Old Trafford.

The news of bookmakers slashing odds on a potential transfer is not something you'd normally use to substantiate a major transfer claim and we've seen bookmakers do this before and the anticipated transfer hasn't followed suit. The German centre-back has been the subject of transfer speculation this transfer window with clubs like Arsenal also interested in the player.

"Harry Maguire did great at the World Cup", he told the Mirror.

The German defender has been a backup target for the most part. Bayern value Boateng at £44m.

Last season's Premier League runners-up have stuttered in the market this summer, having so far only signed Brazil midfielder Fred, promising full-back Diogo Dalot and third-choice goalkeeper Lee Grant.
