Manchester United are set to face competition from local rivals Manchester City for the signature of Jerome Boateng this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that Manchester United are keen on a move for the German defender as Jose Mourinho looks to bolster his options at the back ahead of next season.
The same report says that Boateng looks set to leave Bayern Munich this summer and both Manchester clubs are interested in signing the experienced defender.
Indeed, the same story says that Manchester United are likely to face competition from Manchester City for the signature of the 29-year-old this summer.
Manchester United are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Mourinho looks to build a team capable of winning the title next term.
The Red Devils disappointingly ended last season without a trophy as they ended up in second place in the Premier League table behind Manchester City.
Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013, although they did win both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge.
