Boateng: What I Told Mourinho On The Phone


Pogba has failed to hit the heights that were expected of him, while his relationship with Jose Mourinho is extremely strained.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho will reportedly focus on turning Marcus Rashford into the complete forward after losing patience with Anthony Martial.

Tottenham were heavily linked with the player throughout the summer, while Chelsea were also said to be keen.

When Manchester United splashed a world-record £89 million to re-sign Paul Pogba in 2016, it was supposed to be a transfer for the next decade.

Arsene Wenger was believed to be a fan of Martial during his time at Arsenal, but it is yet to be seen if Unai Emery feels the same way. It was no escape, but rather the thrill of a new challenge.

'As a fan, honestly, part of me is that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right.

However, Maguire said he never had concrete thoughts of leaving Leicester City and Boateng also revealed he wasn't fully convinced of a move.

The 30-year-old has been at Bayern since 2011, and has represented the club on 261 occasions so far.

Bayern Munich's Boateng had already made his stance clear on the transfer as he personally called Mourinho to rule himself out of any potential deal.

"I called Jose Mourinho, I told him that his interest was an honor for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me. Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it. [Bayern Munich boss] Niko Kovac gave me the feeling that I am very important for him and the club".
