Manchester City, PSG join race for Jerome Boateng

Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have seemingly shown interest in Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng as a possible summer signing.

The Germany international has spent the last seven years at the Allianz Arena but Boateng has indicated that he may be ready to take on a new challenge ahead of next season.

Manchester United have evidently been quoted an asking price of £50m and according to Bild, City and PSG are ready to contend with United for Boateng's signature.

The 29-year-old spent the 2010-11 campaign at the Etihad Stadium but City boss Pep Guardiola has worked with the player at Bayern and it may well potentially lead to a reunion.

PSG must carry out their FFP obligations before spending big this summer, but central defense is a position which Thomas Tuchel must reinforce after being brought in as a substitute for Unai Emery.
