Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, said to be a summer transfer target for Manchester United, has admitted he doesn’t know what the future holds in store amid talk of a move to the Premier League, ESPN
United are thought to be preparing an offer of £36m for the Germany World Cup winner, with Dortmund considering accepting the approach for the 26-year-old, part of Joachim Low’s squad that claimed victory in Brazil in 2014.
Hummels has been at Dortmund since a 2008 move from Bayern Munich, first joining on loan before a permanent move a year later, to date making more than 250 appearances for BVB, having played only twice for Bayern’s senior side.
As well as the World Cup, Hummels has won two German titles with Dortmund and the German Cup, two German Super Cups, and was part of the team that finished as runners-up to Bayern in the 2013 Champions League.
“As matters stand, I think about what is good for me and what I want to do,” Hummels said. “Everyone knows that I very much like it here in Dortmund, but I also want us to have a powerful squad and a powerful approach.
“I have held many talks in recent weeks, which are relevant for me and which will form my general view,” he continued. “But I have not made a decision regarding my future. And even if I had, it does not necessarily mean that it can be turned into reality.”
There is speculation that should Dortmund miss out on Champions League qualification following a difficult first half of the season, Hummels could be one of a number of players to leave Signal Iduna Park.
