Boateng agrees deal with Bayern

Manchester City defender Jerome Boateng appears set to return to Germany after agreeing a four-year contract with Bayern Munich.

Boateng failed to make an impression in his only season with City, a campaign which was dogged by injury and a struggle for form.

City and Bayern have yet to agree a fee for the player, but it now seems certain he will be back in the Bundesliga 12 months after leaving Hamburg for Eastlands.

"It is true that I have agreed with Bayern on a four-year deal. Now it is up to Manchester to make it work. At the moment they are making things a bit difficult," Boateng told kicker. "It is about the position. Bayern want me as a central defender. That is also an advantage for the national team.

"My dream is to have a starting spot within a year, hopefully at Bayern, and then I want to win the European Championship."
