Mats Hummels is believed to be at the centre of a tug of war between Manchester United and Barcelona, as the two clubs are trying to prise the German centre-back away from Borussia Dortmund this summer. Hummels, 26, is currently enjoying the World Cup with Germany – having scored two goals in the competition.
The Express reckon United and Barcelona are both in for Hummels, but it is unlikely Dortmnd will want to lose another big name after Lewandowski made the move to Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
Last week, reports suggested that Manchester United were readying a final £20million take it or leave it offer for Hummels, however i doubt that’;; be enough to tempt Dortmund into selling him.
I personally feel Hummels is one of the finest centre-backs in the world, alongside the likes of Thiago Silva and Vincent Kompany. He’d be a great addition to any side, and if we could bag his signature alongside the likes of Arturo Vidal, we’d definitely be competing for the title next year.
