According to Munich's CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, Boateng will be allowed to leave for the right price after the 29-year-old conceded that he was considering his future having "experienced everything" in seven years at the Allianz Arena.
Boateng is one of eight centre-backs on United's radar, alongside Raphael Varane, Kalidou Koulibaly and Toby Alderweireld, with a quality defender a priority in order for them to mount a title challenge next season.
Boateng has Premier League experience having played for rivals Manchester City for the 2010-11 season and may well have a point. Since leaving England he has gone on to win 14 trophies, including the Champions League, with the Bundesliga giants.
An intriguing side-note is that Boateng is one of two footballers represented by Roc Nation sports agency, the other being United striker Romelu Lukaku.
Despite having two years remaining on his current deal with Bayern Munich, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said on the potential sale of Boateng:-
If a club comes to us and he says that he wants to join that club, then we will negotiate. But the offer has to be important.
