Jerome Boateng has expressed his desire to depart Manchester City for German giants Bayern Munich. The 22-year old defender endured a difficult debut season in England after joining City from Hamburg SV last summer and could be on his way out of Eastlands already.

Boateng is determined to get a transfer back to his homeland and seems confident that it may happen.

"It all still depends on the price," Boateng said.

"I would like to join Munich, they are the number one in Germany and are among the top six clubs in Europe.

"I am very confident and I hope it works out. It will become clear in the coming weeks.

"From my side everything is clear."
