Jerome Boateng made his Bundesliga debut with Hertha of his native Berlin in 2007 - at the tender age of 18. He soon moved on to Hamburg and Manchester City, before settling down in the Bavarian capital.
The West Berlin-born central defender is the half brother of Eintracht Frankfurt's Kevin-Prince Boateng. Although he has often been plagued by injury, Jerome Boateng, who was part of the 2014 World Cup-winning squad, is one of the first names on the lineup card, whether it is his coach at Bayern or national team coach Joachim Löw naming his squad.
He's won everything possible while at Bayern Munich but Jerome Boateng could have played his last game for the club. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said the German champions will listen to offers for the defender.
