Contrary to reports, Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng does want to join Manchester United, as per Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol.

It had been suggested that the German international was not interested in a move to Old Trafford due to the style of play that Jose Mourinho used at Man United but Solhekol says this is not the case.

United are clearly in the market for a defender and would like to being one in before the window closes and it looks like Boateng is one of the men on their radar.

Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Leicester City’s Harry Maguire are also under consideration but it’s not yet known if Spurs or the Foxes would be willing to sell.
