Bayern Munich set price for Man Utd target Boateng

Bayern Munich have set their asking price for Manchester United target Jerome Boateng.

The Manchester Evening News says United have been told they can have Boateng for around £50m.

Jose Mourinho has placed the Bayern Munich defender on an eight-man shortlist of centre back targets this summer.

United are continuing negotiations with Tottenham over Toby Alderweireld- but Mourinho is considering a number of cheaper alternatives.

Boateng fits into that bracket, with Bayern willing to listen to offers as low as £43m after telling the German international he is free to go. Mourinho is a big admirer of the former Manchester City player - and is determined to add world class quality in the heart of defence.
