Former Bayern midfielder Mehmet Scholl recently suggested that Boateng had been ordered to improve his game after an inconsistent 2012/13 season.
The 25-year-old confirmed he has spoken to the club, but is surprised by Scholl's claims that he could have been ditched by the European champions.
"[Scholl's] statement is completely false and I'm amazed by it," Boateng told Sport-BILD weekly.
"Of course, I have had talks with the club. I am always talking to the club.
"But this does not mean I am considering leaving. Also, the club has not issued me with any ultimatum regarding my future."
The centre-half joined Bayern in 2011 from Manchester City after spending just one season with the Premier League club.
