Manchester United supporting punters here in the Football Transfer Tavern are on the edge of their seats after seeing the news from the Express – which claims that the Red Devils are in talks to secure a £37 million deal to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.
This is arguably one of the longest running transfer sagas ever, and punters in the Transfer Tavern are actually starting to get sick of hearing gossip and rumours about the German international defender!
It seems likely that the 26-year-old will depart the Signal Iduna Park this summer, along with current boss Jurgen Klopp.
As our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern quips, United are in need of a commanding, world-class centre-back and Hummels is exactly the type of player that Louis val Gaal’s men need.
A small group of Manchester United fans over by the dartboard in the Transfer Tavern completely agree with the landlord, with all of them admitting they’d be over the moon if they landed the German star!
