Boateng has been the subject of reports suggesting he could join Manchester United, while Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel is also thought to be keen on signing the 29-year-old.

United have been linked to the signature of a number of big-name defenders, including Premier League stars Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld - but may be stymied in their desire to bring Boateng or any other name to the club given the new English transfer deadline.

Following Bayern's narrow 1-0 pre-season friendly victory over United at the Allianz Arena, Boateng admitted to Mourinho that he would not move to Old Trafford.

"We've had success with him a lot in the past and I know him very well". Bayern value Boateng at £44m.

The possible departure of central defender Jerome Boateng is causing a controversial debate at Bayern Munich. "He is one of the world's best, and we need his physical presence on the pitch".
