Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels will not be making a move to Premier League champions Manchester United, according to the Dortmund hierachy.
The Daily Mail reports that United had been told by the German club to keep their hands off both Hummels and midfielder Mario Gotze. Gotze has been issued with a £50m valuation following a string of impressive performances domestically and in Europe. The 19 year old is expected to star at the European Championships next summer and Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to sign Gotze before the tournament begins. Ferguson sent two scouts to watch Germany play Holland and his scouts have also seen the midfielder play four times for Dortmund this season.
Dortmund managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke has told any clubs who are interested to save themselves the cost of a phone call. The German champions have also indicated that £100m for both Hummels and Gotze would still not force a sale. Hummels is just 23 and already has 12 German caps, impressing Ferguson whilst he was looking at Gotze. Both players are definitely not for sale according to Watzke.
‘All I can say to all these clubs is they should save themselves the cost of a phone call, because they will be wasting their time and money contacting us even if someone rides out of the desert and makes us an offer, it would make no difference’, Watzke said.
