The experienced centre-back is available on a free transfer, having left Bayern Munich at the end of June, and a recent report claimed that he was desperate to move to Old Trafford.
There have been suggestions that the 20-time English champions could follow up Raphael Varane's signing with another centre-back before the end of the transfer window.
However, according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Man United are not planning a move for Boateng, who is prepared to take his time when it comes to choosing his next club.
