Boateng agent rebuffs Bayern talk

Reports in Germany have suggested that Bayern are lining up a move

to bring the former Hamburg star back to the Bundesliga after one

season in England. The 22-year-old has endured a difficult first

season in the Premier League with injuries restricting his lack of

first-team opportunities. Bayern are thought to be in the market

for defensive reinforcements and Boateng was thought to be on their

wanted list. However, Boateng’s agent, Jorg Neubauer, insists he

has received no contact from Bayern for the German international.

“The whole issue is a newspaper theme,” Neubauer told Kicker. “I

don’t have to think about a transfer as long as no one approaches

me.” When asked if Boateng would consider a move to Bayern,

Neubauer said: “I cannot confirm that.”
