Jerome Boateng

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has told out-of-favour defender Jerome Boateng that he can leave the club this summer.

In an interview monitored by German newspaper SportBild, Ulises Hoeness adviser Bayern Munich defender Boateng to seek an exit in his quest for regular first-team football.

Jerome Boateng struggled for game time at Bayern Munich under manager Niko Kovac who preferred the centre back partnership of Niklas Sule and Mats Hummels for the majority of their games this season.

Niko Kovac led German Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to a domestic double with Sule and Hummels as his first choice centre back partnership.

Jerome Boateng provided two assists in 20 league games enroute to a seventh successive German Bundesliga title for Bayern Munich.

The Bavarian giants sealed the league title on the final day of the season with the 5-0 thrashing of Europa League semifinalists Eintracht Frankfurt at home.

Bayern Munich finished just two points ahead of nearest challengers and rivals Borussia Dortmund on the league table.

Jerome Boateng also made three appearances in the German Cup which Bayern won by beating fellow top flight club RB Leipzig 3-0 in the final played on Saturday.

The 30-year-old German centre back was linked with a move to Manchester United at the start of the just concluded season but he opted to stay with Bayern Munich.

Manchester United are desperately in need of a new defender and they could resurrect their interest in him this summer.
