Manchester United’s desire to sign a centre back before 5pm tomorrow continue at pace. One man they won’t be signing is Jerome Boateng after the Germany rang Jose Mourinho to explain why he didn’t want to sign for them.
Jose Mourinho isn’t exactly having his happiest summer. Things started to really unravel for him at the World Cup when his Manchester United players were playing very well.
His pre season hasn’t exactly gone according to plan either with the players who dared do well at the World Cup enjoying their three weeks off whilst performances and results haven’t been great.
Finally transfers haven’t exactly gone his way either. Early moved for Fred and Diogo Dalot, as well as Lee Grant, have now been replaced by empty transfer rumours and frustration from Mourinho and fans.
The one position the former Real Madrid boss clearly wants to fill is a centre back and one player they were after was Jerome Boateng, that was until the German rang Mourinho to tell he wouldn’t sign.
The news that Boateng has ruled out a move leaves United in a sticky position with the transfer window being so close to being shut.
