José Mourinho is presently not having the best of time target as most of his transfer targets want to move elsewhere despite an official approach from the Portuguese manager.
First, it was Kovacic, followed by Vida both of them deny Mourinho the chance of capturing their respective signatures this summer.
Jerome Boateng, who is being tracked by the United manager is the latest player to reject Mourinho’s approach, that’s according to German media outlets Sport Bild.
The Bayern Munich star was said to be heading out of Allianz Arena this summer and he’s tipped to be heading to Old Trafford as Mourinho wants the player under his watch.
It was reported that the manager met with the experienced centre-back last Sunday – after the pre-season encounter between United and Bayern Munich which ended 1-0 in favour of the Bavarians – to discuss the player’s future.
However, the report which emanated from Germany via the same source, this morning, claimed that the 29-year-old has put a call through to Mourinho to reveal his decision to ignore the chance of returning back to the Premier League ahead of the coming season.
According to the report, Boateng is willing to remain with the Bundesliga Champions until the end of his contract which runs till the end of next season.
