Chelsea edge closer to finishing a deal for Jereome Boateng after the Bundesliga Champions agree not to push for a contract extension
The 32-year-old refused to extend his stay at Bayern Munich and could become Chelsea’s latest signing after the Blues indicated strong interest to sign him.
Boateng joined Bayern back in 2011 and has since then made 354 appearances for the German champions.
Following reports from Kicker, the former Manchester City defender’s wish not to extend his contract will now be honored after Bayern Munich reached an agreement with him.
This comes after Bayern Munich President; Uli Hoeneß blasted the defender as it’s now considered a strategic move not to contradict the news just dropped hours back.
Chelsea remain a major chaser for the Boateng as they push to strengthen up their defense line after seeing a shady leak cause them concede 5 goals against a struggling side.
