Jerome Boateng keen on Bayern Munich move
Friday 10 June 2011
Manchester City defender Jerome Boateng has outlined his desire to join Bayern Munich this summer.
Boateng joined City from Hamburg on a five-year deal 12 months ago but already has his sights set on a move back to the Bundesliga.
The Germany international, speaking at a promotional event in Hamburg, said: "I would like to go to Munich. On my side everything is clear."
Boateng believes he can further his international career at Bayern after expressing his displeasure at being played at right-back at Eastlands.
He added: "I have already told (City boss) Roberto Mancini that I want to play in central defence and not at full--back.
"Bayern have indicated I will play in the centre. To play there regularly is important for me because I will have a better chance of playing in the national team."
Boateng accepts his fate is in City's hands, though.
"It is all about whether I am released. I hope it works," he said.
"Bayern are bigger than Manchester City, they are one of the top six teams in Europe. To play for them would be an honour for me."
