Sport Bild journalist Christian Falk reported that both FC Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur have interest in outgoing Bayern Munich center-back Jerome Boateng, but a report out of Spain indicated that Barca will pass on the 32-year-old veteran.

Falk mentioned FC Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur as potential destinations for Boateng on his podcast and then tweeted the information as well:

According to news from Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona has no interest in Boateng as a solution for its backline next season:

The delicate financial situation of Barça will be a factor to take into account in the next transfer market and if there is a significant investment it will go to the signing of a star such as Erling Haaland. That is why Barça is very aware of the players who are at the end of their contracts and one of the last who could reinforce the squad is Jerome Boateng, a Bayern central defender.

Sport Bild reported that Barça has Boateng, who has already announced that he will not continue at Bayern next season, on its list of future prospects and that Tottenham would also be bidding to incorporate the German international. Sources from Barça consulted by MD have assured us that there is no interest in the incorporation of Boateng.

It will be interesting to see where Boateng ends up. The center-back clearly still has much to offer a club.
