Boateng called Mourinho to turn down Man United

Манчестер Юнайтед може обмінятись ключовими гравцями з Ювентусом Manchester United to bid for Juventus star Dybala

The Mirror reported last month that United held talks with Bayern Munich over a potential £44.5m deal to sign the German World Cup victor following their friendly at the Allianz Arena in early August but once again they failed to get a deal agreed. While he may be seen as an upgrade to what is now available to Mourinho, it's hard to see United making such a move without some players being moved on to allow it to happen. I feel completely contented at Bayern - one of the biggest clubs in the world.

However, it wasn't to be and Mourinho ended up empty handed as executive vice chairman Ed Woodward failed to land any of his defensive targets so United will have to wait until at least January to get their hands on a new centre-back.

Jerome Boateng says he phoned Jose Mourinho to personally explain his decision to reject the chance to join Manchester United over the summer.

After identifying Toby Alderweireld as his top choice, Mourinho then moved on to the likes of Boateng, Harry Maguire, Yerry Mina, Diego Godin and Kurt Zouma.

Trump signs order authorizing "automatic" sanctions for election interference
Bolton says the executive order will work to stem disinformation campaigns or any attempt to manipulate the outcome of ballots. The executive order addresses not only interference with campaign and election infrastructure, but also propaganda efforts.

Sky Sports reported in August that United and Mourinho were huge admirers of the central defender, though the 30-year-old held aspirations to win the UEFA Champions League and he felt he could not do that at Old Trafford.

"I had enquiries from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United". "Not because I wanted to leave Bayern Munich by all means".

He admitted that he was thrilled at the prospect of trying out a new challenge but since Bayern was one of the biggest clubs in the world, it was hard for him to walk away.

However, it was the assurances of new manager Niko Kovac, who promised Boateng that he would be an important part of the team this season, which convinced him to stay at the Allianz Arena, as he explained to Mourinho.
