Hummels will not leave Dortmund for Man United

Manchester United’s pursuit of German international defender Mats Hummels appears to be at an end after he was named as Borussia Dortmund’s club captain for the upcoming season, reports ESPN.

Hummels’ performances in Germany’s World Cup-winning campaign, where he made six appearances and chipped in with two goals including the winner in the quarter final against France, triggered interest from several major clubs.


He was most strongly linked with a move to Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United, however Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp insisted: “He is staying with us.”


Hummels came through the youth ranks at Bayern Munich, but failed to break into the first team, and managed just one senior appearance for the Bavarian giants. After an initial loan spell he moved to Dortmund for €4.2 million (£3.3 million) and since his arrival in 2008 he has firmly established himself as a regular for both club and country.


Klopp named a new on-field leadership structure, with Hummels as club captain, and striker Marco Reus and goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller acting as his deputies.


The Dortmund head coach denied that this reassignment of duties was to put off potential transfer suitors. “One thing has nothing to do with the other but should this somehow lead to it [the players staying beyond 2015], that wouldn't be so bad,” said Klopp. “That they keep getting linked to other clubs, and moreover with laughable transfer fees attached to their names, had nothing to do with it.”


Hummels has three years left to run on his contract at Signal Iduna Park.
