Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has admitted that he is considering his future, with Manchester United said to be interested.
The Germany international started his career at Hertha Berlin and played for Hamburg and Manchester City before signing for Bayern in 2011, where he has gone on to win six Bundesliga titles, three German Cups and the Champions League.
However, with Jose Mourinho looking to strengthen at the back, the 29-year-old is just one of a number of names that has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, and he has now admitted that he could leave the German champions.
He told Socrates magazine: “I’ve experienced everything at Bayern, and I am slowly coming to a point where I must answer myself certain questions.
“What are the goals I have not reached yet? Do I, time and time again, want to prove myself at the same club with the same pre-conditions?’
“Those are not necessarily classic questions regarding the career, but vital questions and, in the end, questions that drive people.”
Boateng is racing to be fit for this summer’s World Cup after picking up a thigh injury against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
Bayern confirmed the centre-back had suffered a “structural injury in the adductor muscle of his left thigh”, which could rule him out for up to six weeks.
