Manchester United are not interested in signing Jerome Boateng on a free transfer this summer, Fabrizio Romano reports.
The German is currently a free-agent after leaving Bayern Munich at the expiry of his contract on June 30.
He has been linked with a Premier League move, but Romano claims that the Red Devils are not exploring a deal.
The club recently agreed to sign Raphael Varane from Real Madrid for a reported fee of around £42 million.
The World Cup winner will earn around £380,000-a-week. United are not considering a move for another centre-back.
The Blues are still searching for a new central defender. They have their sights on landing Sevilla’s Jules Kounde.
If they are unsuccessful, they could be interested in Boateng. The 32-year-old has vast experience of 535 games to his name.
