Manchester United bid for Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng: report

Manchester United have reportedly bid on Bayern Munich’s Jerome Boateng as they step up their interest ahead of the transfer window slamming shut.

All incoming transfers will end this Thursday at 5pm but Premier League clubs can still continue to sell their players as the rest of Europe’s windows are still open.

United have less than 48 hours to sign whoever they can to bring their squad up to scratch for the upcoming season.

Fans have become increasingly concerned with how the club have only made one major signing in former Shakhtar Donetsk man Fred.

Boateng would address a position they’ve been chasing all summer long though it seems there’s still some way before the deal can be completed.

According to Read Bundesliga, Sports Bild report the Red Devils have made a £25m offer for Jerome which is half the valuation Bayern are willing to accept.

Mourinho discussed how he hoped to sign two more players before the window ends but admitted he would potentially only get one.

When asked about the possibility of the German being one of those players the Portuguese manager stated his CEO has known about his wanted transfers for months, placing the pressure firmly on Ed Woodward.
