Manchester United finally accept defeat in transfer chase

hummels.jpgThe Football Transfer is awash with Manchester United fans tonight but they look set to leave disappointed despite our incredible Tuesday night beer deals.

That is because according to talkSPORT, the Red Devils’ pursuit of German international defender Mats Hummels is now over after he was named Borussia Dortmund’s new club captain.

The 25-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer long as new manager Louis van Gaal looks to replace the departed Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

It is the second time the Manchester club have missed out this week having seen their other top summer target Thomas Vermaelen complete a move to Barcelona.

And Arsenal themselves were sounding out a possible move for the World Cup winning international.

But German football source Jonathan Harding said: “Mats Hummels is a very comfortable man and he’s just been made the club captain at Borussia Dortmund,” he told Kick Off.

“I don’t think he’ll be going anywhere this summer, and that is that. Why would the club name him their captain and then sell him in the same window?”

Manchester United fans. Are you disappointed that you were unable to coax Hummels to your club or is there better options available this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
