Jerome Boateng rejects Manchester United move

Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign a centre-back Man Utd transfer news Jose Mourinho is desperate to sign a centre-back

Despite Toby Alderweireld being touted as one of Manchester United's main transfer targets over the summer window, Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly yet to even receive a bid for his services. Instead, they're poised to make a final offer of around £40m for the 29-year-old.

SportBild journalist Christian Falk tweeted yesterday: "Jerome Boateng called Jose Mourinho to tell him personally that he is grateful for the interest, but he won't come to Manchester".

But according to the Guardian, Boateng wants to win the Champions League again and doesn't think United are capable.

The Red Devils boss has Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof, Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo at his disposal but the centre-halves have all struggled with issues over their form and injuries.

Boateng, however, could still move to PSG where new head coach Thomas Tuchel is reported to have been in contact with ahead of the 2018 World Cup.

"I would go for Alderweireld, all day long".

With hospitals and clinics also affected, numerous injured have had to be treated in the open air or in makeshift clinics. A green and yellow dome rested on the pile of rubble, the only part of the structure still intact.

Boateng attracted the attention of several clubs this season, including Juventus and United's bitter rivals Manchester City.

Yet Woodward stalled on paying the lavish fees Mourinho's top targets commanded and with just two days left of a truncated transfer window, United are looking at a crisis that many believe will conclude with another high profile manager parting company with the club.

World Cup victor Hugo Lloris and Belgium internationals Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld were also playing at Russian Federation 2018 only a month ago.

"But of the players potentially available he would not be my first choice".

If the time is indeed up on his second stint at United, then the experience would be rather reminiscent of Angel Di Maria- record breaking money, out of this world hype, disappointing production, moved on to another club very quickly.

"But it will take more than a quality defender to galvanise them, and this is where you have to respect Mourinho's track record and his history of winning trophies".
