The defender will stay at Bayern Munich this season

Jerome Boateng joined Bayern Munich from Manchester City for a fee of €13.5 million on a four-year deal in 2011. He has been a mainstay in the defense since joining the club, making 260 appearances and winning six Bundesliga titles and a Champions League to go with numerous other trophies.

The German International was a key player for the Bundesliga giants last season, making 31 appearances in all competitions and helped them to win their 6th consecutive league title.

The centre-back though cast some doubt over his future by admitting that he may look for new challenges and could potentially leave the club this summer. However, he is contracted with the club until the summer of 2021.

The defender was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United as Jose Mourinho prioritized signing a top class centre-back. But the move never materialized as the Premier League transfer deadline passed.

He was also heavily linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain and interest in buld steadily when he returned from the World Cup. It looked like he will join the Ligue 1 champions but a deal never went through.

Both club manager Niko Kovac and president Uli Hoeness have insisted earlier that they are confident the player will stay with the German side amid transfer links.

Boateng has revealed he held talks with PSG over a potential move but have no complaints for Bayern Muinch blocking the transfer.

He told WELT: “There were talks with Paris, that’s no secret.

“The project there was interesting, the talks with Thomas Tuchel were good.

“That does not mean that I’m not committed to Bayern anymore. I have big goals and will continue to do everything for the club. As I have always done.”
