Man United and Liverpool inch closer to potential massive deal for world-class defender

Mats HummelsMats HummelsManchester United and Liverpool fans ordering a fresh round inside the Transfer Tavern have seen their hopes for the summer window given a significant boost, as a move for a world class defender may be revived.

Le Parisien state Bayern Munich’s prime defensive target this summer is Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, which raises questions as to whether Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels will get the transfer he’s craving.

Dortmund confirmed last week that Hummels, who rose through the youth ranks at Bayern Munich, is keen to re-join the Bavarian giants, which would see the World Cup winner become the latest star to switch to the club’s arch-rivals.

However, with Bayern eyeing Varane as Carlo Ancelotti’s preferred defensive signing, it gives Manchester United and Liverpool hope of securing a move for the defender, with both being linked to the German international in recent months.

United have found themselves regularly touted as a destination for Hummels if he moves to the Premier League, whilst Liverpool have been linked with reuniting the defender with his former Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp.

Which Premier League side would Mats Hummels fit in better with? Let us know in the comments below!
