Mourinho, who has been linked with moves for Tottenham defender Toby Alderweireld and Leicester centre-back Harry Maguire before Thursday's transfer window, selected Alexis Sanchez as captain in Bavaria.

"My CEO knows what I want for quite a long time", Mourinho told German TV ahead of Sunday's game.

"The other clubs who compete with us are really strong and already have fantastic teams". He told MUTV, "If we don't make our team better it will be a hard season for us".

Boateng made 24 appearances for rivals City before leaving for the Bundesliga in the summer of 2011.
