The 34-year-old joined the Bundesliga club in August of that year on a deal through to the summer of 2017, though his contract was cancelled just two-and-a-half years later.

The midfielder has now reflected on how his career could have taken a different path if he had made the decision to join Manchester United.

Boateng struggled to find his best form in Germany and was suspended at the end of the 2014-15 season, with the club citing a “lack of mutual trust” and informing Boateng he could find a new club.

His contract was eventually terminated early in December 2015, freeing him up to re-join Milan on a short-term deal the following month.

The Ghana international has now hinted that he regrets choosing a move to Schalke over the Red Devils, adding that it was his two spells with Milan that saw him develop as a player.

“I had the opportunity to move to Manchester United. I chose Germany – you saw what happened to me at Schalke,” he told Hertha’s website.

“At some point I became intelligent. It started with Milan. I played with world stars and learned something from everyone.”
