Transfer Watch: Kevin-Prince Boateng, Sulley Muntari linked with moves to MLS

A pair of Ghanaian internationals were linked with moves to MLS over the weekend, with Italian outlet reporting on Saturday that Schalke’s Kevin-Prince Boateng and AC Milan’s Sulley Muntari have both drawn interest from the league.

Boateng, 28, has reportedly caught the eye of several MLS clubs. The talented midfielder is in his second season at German club Schalke, and has spent time at Hertha Berlin, Tottenham and AC Milan. He has 15 career caps for the Ghanaian national team, scoring against the US in the 2010 World Cup and playing again against the Americans in the 2014 tournament.

The 30-year-old Muntari was linked specifically with incoming MLS club LAFC, who have reportedly been in touch with the veteran midfielder about joining the club for their 2017 debut season. The former Udinese, Portsmouth and Inter Milan player has 21 goals in 83 career caps with Ghana, making the roster for the 2006, 2010 and 2014 World Cups and playing against the US at the 2010 and 2014 competitions.

Both Boateng and Muntari were sent home from the 2014 World Cup hours before Ghana’s final group stage game due to disciplinary reasons. Boateng has two years left in his contract at Schalke, while Muntari has one year remaining on his deal with Milan.
