Germany defender Jerome Boateng has given an update on his future at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.
Boateng’s future at Bayern has been under scrutiny in the last few months with rumours rife that he could move out of the club but speaking to Kicker the defender insinuated that he was keen in seeing out the final year of his contract with Bayern.
“The club has to come to me one way or the other. I don’t have to get out of Bayern. I still have a contract,” he said.
Boateng has been close to leaving the Bayern in the past two summer transfer windows with the player having been close to joining Paris-Saint Germain in 2018.
It is said he rejected a chance to move to England in the same summer as Manchester United made a loan enquiry for his services.
Boateng has gone down the pecking order at the club with Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard and the preferred options in defence until the elevation of manager Flick at the helm who brought him back to the first team.
Apart from Boateng, there is a chunk of players entering the final year of their respective contracts. The club is said to have already opened talks with David Alaba, Manuel Neuer, and Thiago Alcantara regarding a contract extension, but there have been no discussions with Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez.
