Arjen Robben hopes defender Jerome Boateng remains with Bayern Munich despite the German World Cup victor from 2014 being linked with a transfer from the club.

Manchester United target Jerome Boateng is poised to resurrect his move to Paris Saint-Germain.

"We will see", the 34-year-old said. There are reports that there are negotiations going on behind the scenes between Boateng's management and PSG.

United have been linked to the signature of a number of big-name defenders, including Premier League stars Harry Maguire and Toby Alderweireld - but may be stymied in their desire to bring Boateng or any other name to the club given the new English transfer deadline.

The report also claimed that Bayern will be happy to offload Boateng after growing exhausted of his ill-discipline in recent seasons.

Several years ago, the top-secret Stuxnet computer virus destroyed centrifuges involved in Iran's contested nuclear program. United States prosecutors indicted several Iranians, alleging they worked at the behest of the Iranian government.

Pundits say Boateng is interested in joining PSG and has rejected an offer made by Manchester United.

For now, the delay is not only annoying PSG coach Tuchel but is causing a significant internal dispute in Bayern, so much so that it could affect the team's progress this season.

Bayern face Eintracht Frankfurt away in the Super Cup on Sunday before the German Cup begins next weekend and they start the Bundesliga at home to Hoffenheim on August 24.

However, Robben is hopeful the club will keep the German centre-back for the upcoming season. Former Dutch global Arjen Robben has warned the club's leaders not to underestimate Boateng's value to the team.

"We've had success with him a lot in the past and I know him very well".
