Bayern Munich have agreed a deal with Manchester City for defender Jerome Boateng ending months of speculation.

Bayern have announced the 22-year-old will arrive at the Allianz Arena over the weekend for a medical ahead of signing a four-year contract.

The German international only joined City 12 months ago from Hamburg but failed to settle into the team and the area.

The fee will not be disclosed but is believed to be around £16million. Boateng is  currently in Los Angeles with the Blues but will leave the tour immediately.

Bayern sporting director Christian Nerlinger says Boateng “fits perfectly with Bayern’s philosophy — he is also the player our coach, Jupp Heynckes, wanted.”

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said the transfer followed long and “intensive negotiations.”

Heynckes is returning to Bayern for his third stint as manager at Germany’s most successful club after it failed to win a title last season, finishing third in the Bundesliga.

Bayern has already signed Germany’s No. 1 goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, from Bundesliga rival Schalke and Dale Jennings from Tranmere Rovers.
