League rival Dortmund grabbed Bayern star Boateng?

Jerome Boateng

After ten years, Jerome Boateng has to leave Bavaria in the summer. Does the defender make the “flying change” to Dortmund?

Before the Champions League bankruptcy against Paris St.-Germain, sports director Hasan Salihamidzic announced that the contract with the central defender, which expired in the summer, would not be extended. This opened the game to the 32-year-old.

With Tottenham and Barcelona there should already be two interested parties in the former German team player. But as “Sportbuzzer” reports, league competitor Borussia Dortmund is also considering the 32-year-old's commitment.

BVB is therefore looking for experienced leadership players for the young squad. In addition, a defense partner for Mats Hummels is to be found in order to increase the defensive quality of the black and yellow. Boateng would also be favored by the fact that he was available for a free transfer. Even if Dortmund should miss the Champions League.

But it is also clear: Boateng was one of the top earners at Bayern. In Dortmund he would have to significantly reduce his pay, possibly accept a performance-related contract.

The 32-year-old's farewell had recently deepened the conflict between Bayern coach Hansi Flick and sports director Salihamidzic. While Flick really wanted to keep the defender, “Brazzo” didn't give him a new contract. The successful coach publicly criticized this by stating that he often had to act.
