Jerome Boateng is in talks with Paris Saint-Germain about a possible transfer, Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed.

The 29-year-old defender is believed to be on his way out of the Allianz Arena this summer, with Bayern having signed 22-year-old Niklas Sule last summer as his medium and long-term replacement in Munich.

Germany international Boateng is valued at between €50 million (£44m/£58m) and €60m (£53m/$70m), so a deal will have to be agreed between Bayern and PSG, with Rummenigge claiming that the clubs themselves have yet to discuss a price.

“At the moment there is no direct contact between the clubs,” Rummenigge told reporters. “But there is contact between his agents and PSG. We have to wait, if we could find a basis for a transfer.

“Now we have to wait and see whether at the end of the day we find a basis on which we can agree on a transfer. We have to find a transfer fee that would be acceptable for both.
