According to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester United are not interested in signing a defender on a free transfer this summer.
The 32-year-old defender is currently a free agent after his contract with Bayern Munich expired, and he has recently been mentioned as a prospective target for Manchester United.
He was a regular in Bayern Munich’s lineup last season, scoring one goal and providing one assist in 29 Bundesliga appearances for the German side.
The German is expected to choose a new club in the coming weeks as he tries to secure his future ahead of the new season.
However, according to Italian writer Romano, Manchester United, Hertha Berlin, and PSV Eindhoven are all interested in signing the 32-year-old.
Posting on his official Twitter account over the weekend, Romano wrote: “Manchester United are not considering a move for Jerome Boateng – and he’s not joining Hertha Berlin or PSV this summer. Red circleFlag of Germany #MUFC
“Jerome Boateng will pick his new club in the next days. He’s not in a rush.”
Manchester United, who finished second in the Premier League last season but did not win a trophy, have already agreed to sign Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane, and Tom Heaton this summer.
On 14 August, they will begin off their Premier League campaign at home against Leeds United.
