Odds cut on Boateng to Man United in Jose’s search for a defender

If you're a decent centre-half, chances are you've been linked with United this summer. Jerome Boateng is the latest name to crop up...


We’ve slashed the odds on Jérôme Boateng joining Manchester United today – from 25/1 to 7/2.

This comes amid talk that Jose Mourinho is desperately trying to sign a defensive player before the window shuts on Thursday.

As well as the Bayern Munich star, The Reds have also been linked with Tottenham’s Toby Alderweireld and Leicester’s Harry Maguire. They are priced at odds-on 1/4 and 2/1 respectively to head to Old Trafford this summer.

The German international has been heavily linked with a move away from Munich this summer, but PSG had seemed the most likely destination to this point.

Our very own Paddy Power said: “Jose Mourinho looks to be scrambling to get a defender in his team before the deadline – either that he’s just that keen on getting rid of Chris Smalling.

“Following today’s links, the odds have fallen dramatically on Jerome Boateng being his player of choice, but he needs to act fast.”


1/4 – Toby Alderweireld
2/1 – Harry Maguire
7/2– Jerome Boateng
