Defender Matthijs de Ligt will be out for at least four weeks, the summit against Borussia Dortmund is imminent. According to media reports, those responsible at FC Bayern are now thinking about the return of Jerome Boateng.
After Matthijs de Ligt’s knee injury, there is (once again) defensive alarm at FC Bayern. According to information from “BILD”, the central defender is at risk of being out for 4-6 weeks. Dayot Upamecano is still in training after his muscle injury. With Minjae Kim, Thomas Tuchel only has one regular central defender available two days before the Bundesliga clash against Borussia Dortmund.
As “BILD” reports, Bayern are again dealing with Jerome Boateng. At the beginning of October, the club spoke out against bringing the 35-year-old back. Now the ex-Bayern professional could become a serious option for Munich again.
Boateng “in very good condition”
Despite Bayern’s cancellation, Boateng is still in Munich and is staying fit with the second team. According to “BILD”, the commitment of the 2014 world champion should “come back on the table” with the Bayern bosses.
Thomas Tuchel is said to still be a supporter of the idea. The fact that Boateng would be available immediately and that he was in very good physical condition speaks in favor of Boateng.
