According to Sky in Germany, Manchester United have approached Bayern Munich over a deal for Centre back Jeromme Boateng.

Jose Mourinho’s side believe a deal for around £45m will be enough to allow the Germany international to leave the German champions.

It is understood that despite being a former City players, Boateng would be open for a move to Old Trafford.

As Mourinho is looking to strenghen his defence before Thursday’s transfer deadline a move for Tony Alderweireld, Harry Maguire or Yerry Mina may still be a possiblilty.
