Even four weeks after his official contract with FC Bayern, Jerome Boateng is still without a new club. But that may change shortly: The defender is said to be in talks with Sevilla FC.
There have been many rumors about Boateng, but the 2014 world champion has not yet been able to report execution. According to information from Sport1 The 32-year-old had so far had direct contact with Lazios sports director Igli Tare, and league rivals AC Florence and clubs from Qatar are said to have expressed their interest in the former Bayern star. Boateng is said to have rejected all of these advances.
A return to Hertha BSC is also buzzing around in the media in the background, but should only be a realistic option at the end of the transfer window if Boateng does not find another club.
Sport1 reports that the right footer wants to continue to play in the Champions League and is therefore waiting for the right offers. There are currently two options: Manchester United and Sevilla FC.
At the Red Devils, Boateng is probably only the B solution, should the planned transfer of Raphael Varane (Real Madrid) still fail. That is not to be expected, however, as various media reports suggest that the English are very optimistic that they will have a deal with Los Blancos anytime soon. Almost 50 million euros are to flow into the Spanish capital for Varane.
The trail to Spain seems hotter, where there are talks with Sevilla FC. The Andalusians have established themselves as the fourth force in Spain in recent years and have quite high ambitions. After everything went like clockwork for Seville, especially in the Europa League, it should now also be successful in the Champions League. Last season they were just eliminated from BVB in the round of 16.
In addition, Sevilla FC will have to reckon with the departure of defensive jewel Jules Koundé, who is on the list of many top European clubs, in the summer. Real Madrid in particular are repeatedly associated with the Frenchman in search of a Varane replacement. Boateng, the loud Sport1 Would like to find a new club “as soon as possible” would be an interesting successor.
