Chelsea edge closer to signing German ace ahead of Manchester United

Mats HummelsChelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait to hear what Metro have to say about Mats Hummels who seem to think that the Blues are ready to beat Manchester United to the defender.

Hummels has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and as one of our punters notes over a couple of games of pool with our landlord, we thought Manchester United were first in the queue to land him – before Jose Mourinho cast his eye that is.

A couple of our Chelsea fans in the Tavern note that while we want to see the Blues land a defender this summer, Raphael Varane should be top of their list and this could well just be paper talk – with Mourinho a known fan of the Frenchman and Hummels making noises about moving to Manchester United.

Chelsea fans. Is Hummels someone you’re interested in buying? Would stealing him from under Manchester United’s nose be ideal? Let us know your thoughts below.
