Manchester United supporting punters here inside the Football Transfer Tavern have jumped out of their seats at the latest news coming in from Talksport (via Bild) – with the publication suggesting that the Red Devils are keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels.
Bild claims that the world-class defender is set to hand in a transfer request at the Bundesliga club at the end of the season, due to struggling to get used to the regime of new Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.
Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern feels that Hummels is undoubtedly one of the best centre-backs in world football, and feels that the defender would seriously bolster United’s backline.
A handful of Manchester United fans enjoying a cold beverage here in the Tavern are ridiculously excited at this news, and feels Van Gaal should do everything in his power to lure the German international to Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, a small group of Liverpool fans over in the corner of the Tavern feel that Jurgen Klopp should try and sign Hummels for Liverpool – something the landlord very quickly dismissed!
So…. Manchester United fans….. What do you make of this news? Do you envisage seeing Hummels in a Dortmund shirt anytime soon? Let us know your thoughts and opinions below!
