There’s been a lot of talk all summer about whether or not Jerome Boateng would be departing the club. The defender has expressed a interest in, once again, playing in a different country. Now, we know that Bayern have set an asking price.
According to Sport Bild, Boateng’s agent Christian Nerlinger met with Bayern brass Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Uli Hoeneß, and Hasan Salihamidzic to discuss his future before the World Cup got under way. At that meeting, they agreed that Boateng could leave the club this summer if Bayern got between €50-60 million for him.
However, if they can’t get that amount, both sides are content with Boateng fulfilling his contract with Bayern through 2021.
Yesterday, we brought you a report from Sport Bild that Bayern will be targeting Ajax’s Matthijs de Ligt if they sell Boateng in this transfer window. It remains to be seen if that is something that will occur, but we at least know now that Bayern have set a target price for the German international.
