Bayern Munich willing to listen offers after World Cup
Manchester City were outstanding last season under Pep Guardiola, winning the League Cup and the Premier League comfortably. But the manager is still keen to bolster his squad this summer for the next season.
Since taking the reins at the Etihad Stadium, the former Barcelona boss has received considerable backing in the transfer market. They have invested heavily in the likes of John Stones, Leroy Sane, Gabriel Jesus, Ederson, Bernardo Silva, Kyle Walker, Benjamin Mendy and Aymeric Laporte in the past transfer windows.
The Spaniard is looking to further strengthen the squad as other Premier League rivals are reinforcing their squads. He has prioritized signing a holding midfielder but could move another centre-back.
Manchester City are eyeing a potential deal to bring defender Jerome Boateng back to the club this summer from Bayern Munich, BILD reports (via Manchester Evening News ). He left them in 2011 to join the German side and has worked under Guradiola too when he was managing then in Germany.
The Germany International joined the Bundesliga giants from the Citizens for a fee of €13.5 million on a four-year deal. He has been a mainstay in the defense for the club, winning six League titles and a Champions League to go with numerous other trophies.
The 29 year old though cast some doubt over his future by admitting that he may look for new challenges and could potentially leave the club. He is contracted with the club until 2021 but has been recently linked with a move back to Premier League.
Manchester United have also shown interest in the defender as Jose Mourinho wants strengthen his backline for the next season. Bayern are reportedly willing to listen to offers this summer after the World Cup and values him around £50 million.
