Time is running out for Arsenal and Manchester United to complete a deal as the Premier League's transfer window closes this Thursday.

Pavard is said to stand for Bayern's new generation next to German worldwide Sule, who is the first choice to replace Boateng should the 29-year-old leave.

Here's where United stand on their various defensive candidates with less than 24 hours to the deadline.

Boateng endured a hard World Cup like the rest of his compatriots as defending champions Germany crashed out in the group stage following losses to Mexico and South Korea.

Bayern Munich value Boateng at €50 million which is why they rejected Manchester United's offer of €25m.

He also faces a charge of contravening Zimbabwe's electoral act by announcing allegedly illegal or fabricated election results. This follows allegations that Zanu-PF lost presidential votes in the province but they were declared winners by ZEC.


United are keen to buy a centre-back and it's understood they are interested in Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng.

Leicester have slapped an £80m price tag on the 25-year-old but United may be forced to overpay as they grow more desperate.

Referencing reports that Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is looking at Barcelona as a possible new home for his player, Ferdinand said: "Don't you dare allow this ED. #MUFC is Pogba's home!" Having won the World Cup with France in Russian Federation, the midfielder wants his wages to rise to £350,000-a-week from his existing £150,000-a-week.

Boateng also missed a number of games at the beginning of the 2017-18 season due to another hamstring problem. "We must avoid being our own enemy", 34-year-old Robben said before adding that Boateng is one of the world's best defenders, "and we need his quality".

During a three-month injury break in 2016, Boateng was accused by Bayern officials of neglecting his recovery to participate in too many celebrity events and follow individual marketing endeavors.
