In the summer of 2021, the 34-year-old moved to Olympique Lyon on a free transfer after Bayern Munich failed to offer him a new contract after ten years at the club.

Jérôme Boateng: Only four seasons – world champion, he is one of the best earners

Because Boateng couldn’t do much self-promotion. After playing 27 competitive games in his debut season under former BVB manager Peter Bosz, he was sorted by the Dutchman at the start of the current campaign. It was only after the coaching change in October that Boateng was allowed to play again from Matchday 11. He started four times under new coach Laurent Blanc, but was always substituted. In the last game before the World Cup break, he was again absent from the squad.

Since Boateng is said to be one of the best earners in the team, the performance no longer matches the club’s spending. That’s another reason why the Berliner could be a thorn in owner Textor’s side. Boateng’s future is once again in doubt after leaving Bayern. A return to Germany should be difficult given his image, the trial for alleged bodily harm against his ex-partner is still ongoing.

Apparently, Lyon are even letting the ex-DFB star go for free so they can drop him from the wage bill.

How? ‘Or’ What feet Mercato also writes that there is already someone interested in Boateng, but the club has not been named. With a farewell, Boateng could soon make way for one of France’s many talents in the squad. The Lyon youngsters are also wanted internationally, with FC Bayern recently considering the right-back as a possible replacement for Benjamin Pavard. (ajr)
