Manchester United and Manchester City to fight it out for £50m-rated Bayern star Jerome Boateng this summer
Guardiola is a massive fan of the 29-year-old after working with him at the Allianz Arena.
But Pep will have a great chance of landing him after winning three Bundesliga titles with the defender between 2014 and 2016.
He can also fill in at right-back but it is at centre-back where he has established himself as one of the finest defenders in Europe.
Boateng left City in 2011 to boost his Germany chances with regular football at Bayern.
Within three years he had won the World Cup by being part of his country’s triumph at Brazil.
The Berlin-born star suffered injury hell two seasons ago with a thigh problem but has returned this season to play regularly – but sources close to the player expect him to move this summer.
