Boateng: What I Told Mourinho On The Phone”

Man Utd news: Will Jose Mourinho be sacked?

Jerome Boateng personally called Jose Mourinho to tell him he won't be joining Manchester United.

Mourinho really, really wanted a central defender before the window slammed shut with a bunch of names linked with a transfer to Old Trafford.

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.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup victor was heavily linked with the Red Devils and Paris Saint-Germain in the latest transfer window, but a move away from the German giants did not materialise.

'I learned a lot with Jose, ' Makelele told The Sun ahead of United's clash with Watford.

'Neville the pundit on Pogba would say, "He's a talented player but I want to see more consistency and leadership", the former right back told The Times.

The German defender has revealed he rejected an approach from Mourinho and Man United. "I feel completely contended 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. "Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it. [Bayern Munich boss] Niko Kovac gave me the feeling that I am very important for him and the club".

Boateng, who has previously played for Manchester City, attracted interest from United and French champions Paris Saint-Germain during the transfer window, but chose to remain at Bayern.
