Soccer – Full agreement between Jerome Boateng and PSG



As per a report from French outlet Paris United, Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has reached a contract agreement with Ligue 1 champions PSG.

World-class

Boateng, 29, has been on the books of the Bavarian giants since 2011, when he made the move back to Germany from Manchester City following just a solitary campaign at the Etihad.

And Boateng has since gone on to establish himself as one of the finest central defenders in world football, racking up 6 Bundesliga titles, 3 German Cups and a Champions League crown since his his return to the Allianz Arena.

As such, despite his still-crucial role in the backline of the Bavarians, mounting reports that the former Hamburg man could be available for the right price this summer have come as something of a surprise.

Boateng himself did little to dampen the rumours that he could be set for an exit from Bavaria following Bayern’s Champions League semi-final elimination at the hands of Real Madrid back in May, when he explained:

‘I experienced everything at FC Bayern.’

‘So now I certainly reach a point where I have to answer certain questions to myself: ‘What goals do I have that I did not reach yet? Do I want to prove myself always at the same club and always under the same circumstances?’

‘This is a question of personal challenges. It is not about classical career questions, but about questions for your life.’

Suitors

The two clubs most heavily-touted as potential destinations for Boateng to this point have been Manchester United and PSG, with a report from Kicker last week having claimed that the former were considering a big-money offer for the German stopper.

However, as revealed by multiple outlets in both France and Germany over the days since, it is in fact PSG who have taken a clear lead in the race for the Hertha Berlin youth product, with the aforementioned update from Paris United this evening having revealed that an agreement on the personal terms of a contract has today been found between Boateng and the capital giants.

Now, PSG will need to find a deal with Bayern, though a transfer is, in the end, expected to go through, with the Bavarians not opposed to the sale of their star defender.
