Boateng joined the Bundesliga champions from Manchester City in 2011, and still has four years left to run on his contract with the German giants.

Boateng is the latest in a long line of top quality centre-backs to be linked with a move to the Spanish side this summer, as they continue to search for a successor to the retired legend Carles Puyol.

The club are now said to be monitoring the 25-year-old’s situation and will decide whether to make a concrete move for him over the next week.

However, he will come at a price and if Barcelona are serious about following up on their interest they will have to fork out a hefty sum to get the German international.

Bayern are in no rush to sell the former Manchester City man, and Barcelona may need to fork out somewhere near €39m to get up close with him.

Boateng has made 131 appearances for Bayern since joining, and has also racked up 44 international caps for Germany.
