Boateng, 25, was linked primarily to the Bundesliga giants after struggling to assert himself in the Serie A recently.

But the Ghanaian has assured the club that he will not be joining brother Jerome at Bayern and he is committed to repaying Milan's faith in him.

"I've heard the story that I'm off to Bayern, but there is no truth in that," Boateng told Bild. "It's just a rumour. I can say something very clearly and that is that I am happy at Milan and I am not ready to leave this club.

"I owe a lot to Milan and I'm not thinking about Bayern Munich or any other team."
