Bayern stars oppose club's plan to sell defender Boateng

Robben underlines Boateng's importance to Bayern

In the 29-year-German global, Jose Mourinho would have an experienced head who can provide a boost in European competitions while also being a leader who the likes of Eric Bailly and Victor Lindelof could look up to.

The Red Devils only began his pursuit in the weekend in a bid to reinforce more to their back-line before the culmination of the transfer day deadline.

SportBild journalist Christian Falk tweeted yesterday: "Jerome Boateng called Jose Mourinho to tell him personally that he is grateful for the interest, but he won't come to Manchester".

Boateng spent a season with Manchester City and fans speculated whether this could be the reason for his reluctance to move to Old Trafford.

However, ESPN FC journalist Baldini doesn't anticipate Manchester United matching Bayern Munich's transfer demands ahead of the deadline on Thursday. The 29- year-old Germany worldwide has been the subject of interest from the Red Devils, who are desperate to bring in a new centre-back before Thursday's transfer deadline.

That's quite the endorsement from a player on a fellow Premier League title contender, especially on the heels of the criticism Mourinho has received for his treatment of Paul Pogba. 22-year-old Benjamin Pavard is rumored to have already signed an agreement with the Munich outfit during this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

The Swedish striker dropped into see his old team-mates during their pre-season tour of the United States last month.

"But it will take more than a quality defender to galvanise them".

United brought in Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk for £53.1m, Diogo Dalot from Porto for £19.8m and Lee Grant from Stoke for 1.5m this summer. But, the late juncture of the transfer window in England means that the Premier League heavyweights have been actively pursuing a move for Boateng, with Toby Alderweireld and Harry Maguire the other major targets.
