Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben is hoping the club's management will make the right decision with regards to Jerome Boateng's future.

The agent of Manchester United target Jerome Boateng is to hold talks with Paris Saint-Germain's sporting director on Thursday. While the club's management favour selling the 29-year-old German global this summer, coach Niko Kovac and several stars are demanding that Boateng stays.

The report also claimed that Bayern will be happy to offload Boateng after growing exhausted of his ill-discipline in recent seasons.

United have been linked to the signature of a number of big-name defenders, including Premier League stars Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld - but may be stymied in their desire to bring Boateng or any other name to the club given the new English transfer deadline.

Szabo, who was in town for a wedding, had knocked on a window of an SUV he apparently thought was his Uber ride, his family said. An eyewitness said Szabo was banging on cars and slammed down on Jones' vehicle before the confrontation, the official said.

Pundits say Boateng is very interested in joining PSG and has rejected an offer made by Manchester United.

Bayern however would be able to sell the centre-back to a continental club, such as PSG, until the end of the month. The German tabloid Bild reported that Boateng called United coach Jose Mourinho to tell him he won't be heading to Old Trafford.

Robben is concerned about the team's success and said, "We must avoid being our own enemy", before adding that Boateng is one of the world's best defenders, "and we need his quality".

"Jerome Boateng is one of the best defenders in the world for me", Robben said at the conclusion of Bayern's training camp at Rottach-Egern on Thursday.
