EPL: Makelele reveals Mourinho is exhausted at Manchester United

The 25-year-old has endured putting up with Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho over the past year but has made a decision to calm his nerves with the United boss.

Jerome Boateng has confirmed reports that both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were interested in him this summer while revealing that Jose Mourinho was unable to convince him to leave Bayern Munich.

Former Chelsea star Claude Makelele believes Jose Mourinho has been worn down by the modern generation of Manchester United stars.

Mourinho was adamant on bringing another centre-back to Old Trafford, with Harry Maguire also viewed as a target.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup victor was heavily linked with the Red Devils and Paris Saint-Germain in the latest transfer window, but a move away from the German giants did not materialise.

He told the Bild that he had "enquiries" from Man United and PSG but opted to remain in Germany because everything was "in place". It was no escape, but rather the thrill of a new challenge. "I explained to Jose that it's hard to leave Bayern and, if I do, everything has to be in place to top this club".

That's left United without a title for five years, and so it's no surprise an older player like Boateng would risk missing out on potential titles at Bayern to join United. I feel completely contented at Bayern - one of the biggest clubs in the world. "Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it. [Bayern Munich boss] Niko Kovac gave me the feeling that I am very important for him and the club".

Manager Jose Mourinho was desperate to sign a new centre-back in summer and the situation grew more desperate as the deadline loomed.
