Jerome Boateng: Former Bayern star before moving to Spain
Lazio Rome? AC Florence? Qatar? These addresses have been mentioned repeatedly in the recent past. But now it should go to Spain. As reported by Sport1, FC Sevilla * is a very hot option for Boateng. Because: The 32-year-old definitely wants to play in the Champions League again. That would be possible with the Andalusians, who finished fourth in La Liga last season. In addition, the FCS is one of the most successful international clubs in recent years: Since 2014, they have won the Europa League four times, and this competition is a record winner.
Another alternative would apparently have been Manchester United.
There Boateng was seen as a substitute for Raphael Varane.
The Frenchman from Real Madrid is currently the hottest central defender candidate for a transfer to the Red Devils, the move is close to completion.
Transfer fee: 50 million euros.
So Boateng is unlikely to return to his former home.
In 2010 and 2011 he played for city rivals Manchester City.
