Jerome Boateng to stay at Bayern

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola has dismissed speculation Jerome Boateng could join Barcelona this summer.

Radio Marca has reported that Barca had made the Germany centre-back their top target as they seek to reinforce their defence this summer, but Guardiola insisted Boateng is firmly in his plans.

"I don't usually say anything about things I read in the newspaper, but I am planning 100 percent with him here," the former Barca boss told a news conference in Portland, Ore., where Bayern are preparing for a game against MLS All-Stars on Wednesday.

Bayern have already allowed Mario Mandzukic and Toni Kroos to leave this summer, but Guardiola said he did not expect any more of his first-team players to leave.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told Bild that the rumours about Boateng, who signed from Manchester City in 2011, were "laughable."

Sky Sports has reported that Barcelona have now made a bid worth 10 million pounds for Arsenal defender Thomas Vermaelen.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
