Transfer Talk: Manchester United are close to signing Mats Hummels

Manchester United feel as though they are close to making their first signing, and its not who you’d expect it to be. The extremely reliable Andy Mitten claims Manchester United feel it won’t be long before Mats Hummels is wearing the famous Red shirt.

Manchester United need that marquee centre-back signing, and Hummels fits the bill perfectly. He’s 25, and played an awful lot of top level football already in his career; He also has two Bundesliga titles to his name. He can pass, tackle and win aerial battles, but most of all he’s a leader.

Ed Woodward needs a big summer, and kicking things off with a stellar name like Hummels would be an excellent start. We’ve often been promised ‘two or three’ signings before the World Cup, and it looks like we’ll bring nobody in before then.

However I fully expect a flurry of signings as soon as the World Cup is over, and hopefully we can bring in some real quality before the season starts in the middle of August.

Would Mats Hummels be a good addition for United? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
