​Bayern Munich players urge Boateng to resist Man Utd overtures

Jerome Boateng has been encouraged to shun a move to Manchester United - by his Bayern Munich team-mates.

The 29-year-old is highly thought of among the squad and left-back David Alaba said the team would "all be sad" if the defender left the club.

Franck Ribery reiterated Alaba's thoughts and said: "I've been playing with Jerome for many years now.

"I hope he'll stay with us because he's an important player. To me, he's one of the best central defenders in the world."
