Manchester United are monitoring Jerome Boateng’s situation at Bayern Munich as they look to bolster their defensive options.
Jose Mourinho has identified centre back as a weak area of his squad despite spending big on both Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof in the last two years. He is reportedly keen to sign Harry Maguire from Leicester City, while Leonardo Bonucci is reportedly unhappy at AC Milan.
But with uncertainty over Boateng’s future at Bayern under new boss Niko Kovac, he could become available. Both United and PSG are said to be keen on his services.
Toby Alderweireld of Tottenham Hotspur is another possible option for Mourinho, but he will have to act quickly with the transfer window closing on August 9, the day before the Red Devils kick off their Premier League campaign against Leicester.
Having already signed Fred, Diogo Dalot and Lee Grant, United are focussed more on keeping their stars right now. The list of Anthony Martial’s suitors is growing, with Chelsea joining Bayern and Spurs in the race for his signature, but Mourinho will not budge on his €100million valuation of the Frenchman.
