Bayern Munich's star defender Jerome Boateng has refused to rule out a move in the future and fully commit to the Bundesliga champions, amid reported interested from Serie A powerhouses Juventus and Inter Milan.
The German international has spent his entire career in his native country bar a single season with Manchester City in 2010. However, he has unexpectedly put potential suitors on red alert, revealing to Bild (via Calciomercato) that he would be willing to leave the Bavarians in the future:
"Future with Bayern Munich? To play in a foreign league has always been on my mind. It will depend [on] the situation but let's see."
The 29-year-old is currently enjoying his seventh campaign at the Allianz Arena and has firmly established himself as one of the finest central defenders in world football.
Juventus are still reeling from the loss of Leonardo Bonucci to AC Milan in the summer and are extremely interested in acquiring Boateng's services. The Italian international was a crucial figure with the Turin giants and thus far, new loan-signing Benedikt Howedes has been unable to match his impact.
Inter currently have a capable partnership in the centre of defence in Brazilian veteran Joao Miranda and rising talent Milan Skriniar. However, the prospect of signing one of the world's finest is incredibly alluring for the Nerazzurri and they will look to pursue the stalwart, should he become available.
The 2014 World Cup winner's contract is set to expire at the end of the 2020-21 campaign, giving Bayern time to tie the superstar down and to attempt to quench his thirst for travel.
