Jerome Boateng is the latest Manchester City player to speak out of his unhappiness at the club in what looks to be another busy transfer window at Eastlands.
He has joined players such as Emmanuel Adebayor, Wayne Bridge, Joleon Lescott and Shaun Wright-Phillips whose departures look imminent.
Boateng has also expressed his desire to return to his former club Hamburger SV, the club he reached two consecutive Europa League semi-finals.
They are currently sitting in mid-table at present in the German Bundesliga but with the players they have at their disposal such as Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Eljero Elia and Piotr Trochowski, they should be definate title challengers and Jerome Boateng knows this.
He told the Hamburger Morgenpost, “I want to return to Hamburg one day, it’s a determined wish.”
The versatile Germany international only signed for Manchester City in June for approximately £10 million after a succesful World Cup. He was involved in a training ground bust-up with fellow team-mate Mario Balotelli on Friday. It now looks as if the camp at City is an unhappy one which may have an affect future signings.
There is one thing we do know for sure though and that is Manchester City will be creating all the headlines when the transfer window re-opens next month.
