Metro have Manchester United fans beaming here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they seem to think the Red Devils have been given the go ahead from Borussia Dortmund to land Mats Hummels.
As one of our punters notes over a beer and burger, United have been linked to just about every eligible defender in Europe this season and given how well Louis van Gaal has done with the defenders at his disposal this term, we think that if the club manage to add a couple of quality ones, they will be title contenders next term.
United look set to beat Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal to the highly-rated defender’s signature, and it will undoubtedly enhance the Red Devils’ chances of cementing a top four spot next season.
Hummels is keen to leave BVB and the club are more than happy to cash in on him – and given they are facing at least a season without Champions League football, you can see why they are keen to bring in some money to the club.
Manchester United fans. Out of all the defenders you have been linked with this season, is Hummels the best of the bunch? Let us know your thoughts below.
