Manchester United have been linked with a move to sign Jerome Boateng but the Germany international called Jose Mourinho to inform him he doesn’t want a move to Old Trafford.
The former Manchester City defender was made available to United for a £22m as Jose Mourinho plans to bolster his defensive options this summer.
However, the Bundesliga champions rejected the Red Devils offer after they failed to meet their £50m price-tag on the defender.
German outlet Bild claim Boateng decided to get in contact with Mourinho after the bid was lodged and spoke personally to the manager.
Manchester United have also been linked with a move to sign Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham this summer, while both clubs are yet to agree, Barcelona’s Yerry Mina has also been lined up as an alternative to the Belgian.
