Jerome Boateng available on FREE transfer in summer as Bayern will not renew deal with ‘several English clubs’ keen

PREMIER LEAGUE clubs have been alerted to Jerome Boateng’s availability after Bayern Munich decided to let the defender go.

Out of contract in the summer, the defender will follow David Alaba in departing as a free agent.

The 32-year-old has made over 350 appearances for Bayern, winning the treble twice, since a 2011 move ended a flop spell at Manchester City.

But, according to German publication Kicker, Boateng’s exit has been rubber-stamped by Munich bosses.

And his entourage have already been informed of the decision to move him on.

A departure from Allianz Arena has been rumoured for some time and the interest of some clubs was piqued when Bayern secured the signing of Dayot Upamecano for next season.

Bild report on ‘several’ English clubs monitoring his situation with a move to MLS not out of the question.

The German has previously featured in links to Arsenal and Chelsea.

Mikel Arteta is in the midst of a huge squad rebuild at Emirates Stadium while a new centre-back is thought to be on Thomas Tuchel’s long list of targets in the next window.

Boateng missed Saturday’s 1-0 win over RB Leipzig due to suspension but has otherwise remained a first-choice for the Bundesliga giants.

Coach Hansi Flick recently defended his player after Bayern advisor Uli Hoeness criticised calls for his return to the German national team.

The World Cup winner was one of the veteran players discarded by Joachim Low two years ago, a decision called into question after the recent defeat to North Macedonia.
