Bayern Munich legend Oliver Kahn has hinted that the Bavarians could offer rumoured Tottenham Hotspur target Jerome Boateng a contract extension at the end of the season.
Boateng’s time at Bayern looked to be up not too long ago but the experienced defender has enjoyed somewhat of a revival since Hansi Flick took charge of the side last season.
Not only did the German international play a key role in the club’s Bundesliga and Champions League triumphs last season but he has continued to be a regular in the side at the start of this campaign (transfermarkt.com).
The 32-year-old is now into the final year of his deal at the Allianz Arena and SportBild (via Daily Mail) reported this month that Bayern may not offer him a new deal, with Spurs set to battle London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea for his signature.
While Boateng has denied suggestions that Tottenham have contacted his representatives (Suddeutsche Zeitung via Evening Standard), the defender did admit that he would be attracted by the prospect of moving to London in the future (Goal.com).
Kahn, who is an executive board member at Bayern, has now admitted that the club will sit down to negotiate a deal with the centre-back when the time is right.
The legendry goalkeeper told Sky Germany (as relayed by TBR Football): “Of course we’re in contact with Jerome. We know what he has achieved and what he is able to do. We will hold talks at the appropriate time and come to a fair solution.”
