Interesting. Bayern defender Jerome Boateng looks to be leaving Bavaria this summer and a move back to England for the former Manchester City player is of interest.
“I would not say no [to a Premier League return]. I love to [watch] the Premier League, I loved also when I was there to play,” Boateng said at a news conference.
“For me it was really unlucky because I got injured straight [away] and then I didn’t really play the position they promised me. But I still took a lot from this year, playing in the Premier League, it helped me a lot to play and train with great players, world-class players.
“I am definitely down [for] it, but I don’t know for the future. You never know. But it’s not that I would say ‘I never want to play there.’ It’s one of my favourite leagues for sure.”
