Playing for Ghana has allowed him to participate in two World Cups - South Africa 2010 and Brazil 2014 - where he faced his brother.
Formed in Hertha Berlin's junior sides - a team with which he debuted in the Bundesliga -, Boateng has played in four of the five major European leagues wearing the shirts of Tottenham, Portsmouth, Milan, Schalke, Eintracht Frankfurt, Las Palmas and Sassuolo, the team from which he arrives in Barcelona.
