FOOTBALL – AS Monaco Mercato: Boateng, the big summer move of Niko Kovac?

AS Monaco could make a big transfer in the next summer mercato. To strengthen the defensive sector of Monaco, coach Niko Kovac is thinking of attracting Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng to France.

Bayern Munich open to a departure Jerome Boateng

The German accent could be confirmed a little more at AS Monaco. Indeed, after the arrival of coach Niko Kovac in July 2020, the Monegasque club is now thinking of doing its summer market on the side of the Bundesliga. The club of the Principality has eyes on several German players. And among these potential targets is Jerome Boateng.

According to the latest information from France Football, the central defender of Bayern Munich would indeed be the subject of a particular monitoring of the Monegasque coach who would be tempted by the idea of attracting him to the Principality. It must be said that the two men know each other very well. Niko Kovac, the Monegasque coach, has already coached the 32-year-old player when he was still at Bayern Munich and he has fond memories.

The coach of ASM could offer a reinforcement of weight for free, especially since Jerome Boateng will be free in June. The Bavarian management has already made his departure official this summer. “I have spoken to Jerome. His contract expires and will not be renewed. It was a joint decision of the club management and the coach (Hansi Flick) is also involved,” said Bayern‘s sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić.

Other clubs on the case

Jérôme Boateng

AS Monaco will have to be wary of the competition on this file at zero euros. Jerome Boateng is also announced in the sights of several European teams. A good range of high level clubs are involved in the race to recruit him. We speak of Tottenham, Real Madrid or Manchester United. So, how will the Monegasque leaders go about it in order to outdo all these clubs? The battle for this big shot at zero euros will undoubtedly be very eventful.
