Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has confirmed that he had made contact with Paris Saint-Germain regarding a summer move from the Allianz Arena. The Germany international had a World Cup to forget after the nation were ousted at the group stage but that did not have much impact on his reputation as a player.
Speaking to German outlet WELT, the former Hamburg man confirmed that there was indeed interest from the French champions but ultimately a deal could not materialise. He added that he now remains committed to the Bundesliga holders and would continue to play to the best of his abilities for the club, he said: “There were talks with Paris, that’s no secret. The project there was interesting, the talks with Thomas Tuchel were good. That does not mean that I’m not committed to Bayern anymore. I have big goals and will continue to do everything for the club. As I have always done.”
