Mourinho driving Spurs talks with Bayern Munich defender Boateng

Tottenham have opened talks with Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng.

With his deal expiring in June, Boateng is free to discuss pre-contract terms with any foreign club and Sky Deutschland via Foot Mercato says negotiations have commenced with Tottenham.

The 32 year-old former Manchester City defender was informed last week that Bayern would not be renewing his deal.

And in a sure sign that Jose Mourinho will be staying with Tottenham next season, an approach has been made to Boateng.

Mourinho tried to sign the stopper when in charge of Manchester United and is now driving this Bosman deal. A move by Mourinho was made in 2018 as he sought to bring Boateng back to England, but after serious consideration, the defender chose to re-commit himself to Bayern Munich.

While Bayern Munich chiefs are now willing to allow Boateng to come off contract, he has still managed 32 appearances for Hansi Flick's team this season, scoring twice.
