U.S. Abroad: Bayern's Rummenigge lists Texan Richards in mix if Boateng leaves

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is not in any rush to replace German star Jerome Boateng if he is transferred to Paris St. Germain, downplaying suggestions that Bayern will sign 22-year-old French World Cup champion Benjamin Pavard from VfB Stuttgart.
