German newspaper Bild reports today that Bayern Munich are in negotiations with giant City defender Jerome Boateng over an imminent transfer out of town…
The 22 year old German International has endured a lot of bad luck during his season at Eastlands. Repeated injuries have seen his league and cup starts for the FA Cup winners reduced to 18 from a possible 57.
When opportunity has knocked, the likes of Kompany, Zabaleta, Richards and Lescott have been in such fine form that he was relegated to the Berti.
Boateng is currently the only injured player in the City squad.
There has been much speculation over a possible move back to his home land of late which led to City boss Roberto Mancini stating earlier this month that Boateng is going nowhere.
However, Bild quotes incoming Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes as saying that ‘Negotiations are underway.’
Boateng joined The Citizens from Hamburg for a fee of £10,460,000 last June.
