Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has admitted that he has been in touch with AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng to talk about the Bundesliga giants' alleged plans to re-unite the half brothers.
Recent reports from Germany suggested that Bayern are closely monitoring the 25-year-old's situation at the Rossoneri, and although the midfielder revealed earlier this week that he is unaware of any potential interest, both siblings have already discussed the matter.
"We have already talked about it a few times," Jerome was quoted as saying by AZ.
"I do not know how concrete it all is, though. It seems as if it's just some distant rumours for now."
The midfielder then went on to stress that Bayern cannot afford to lose focus again like they did last term, when they collapsed after a good start to the season and were pipped to the title by Borussia Dortmund.
"We can't let that happen again. It's crucial that we also win the games, where we are not at our best. We know that it will be very difficult to beat us as long as we stick together like a team."
Bayern currently hold a five-point lead over second-placed Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga table.
