Since moving to the Bundesliga giants from Man City in the summer of 2011, Boateng has proven to be a fantastic purchase for the club.

The defender, despite being somewhat troubled by injuries during his career, has still managed to clock up a total of 258 appearances during his time with Bayern, a respectable total to say the least.

If either side are to sign Boateng this summer, then it seems he will be available at an absolute bargain price for a player of his supreme quality.
