The president of Bayern Munich, Uli Hoeness has revealed that he has told Jerome Boating to consider taking on another challenge away from the German champions.
The revelation comes just 12 months after a last-minute move to Manchester United was rejected by the central defender. However, this season he has fallen out of favour with Niko Kovac; having being an unused substitute the final two games of the Bundesliga season, as well as missing out on playing a part in the club’s German Cup win over RB Leipzig on Saturday.
There will be a host of club’s across Europe monitoring the situation, with Boating’s age likely to mean that the fee required will be lower than most defenders of his quality. The 30-year-old could yet to decide to remain at the Allianz, with his current contract running until the end of the 2020/21 season.
The German international has been a fine addition to Bayern since his transfer from Manchester City in the summer of 2011. He has won seven Bundesliga titles, four German Cups and the Champions League and Club World Cup.
It is likely to be a big summer for the Bavarian club, with a transition from an older squad to a younger one. The club has already revealed that they are interested in making a move for Manchester City’s Leeroy Sane.
The transfer window will be a vital period should German outfit achieve their goal of competing in the Champions League again. They were knocked out by the BetXChange 0.91 favourites for the competition this season.
