It seems like once again being a summer of disappointment for Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern and after Metro made their latest claim, it looks set to continue.
Our landlord informs us that the Red Devils may well miss out on Mats Hummels after the Borussia Dortmund star claimed he would turn down a switch to the English side this summer.
Hummels is currently starring in the World Cup for Germany and does not seem to appreciate questions over his future, claiming: “I never think or talk about that because it is not something that is important to me right now.
“Maybe it will be someday, but I don’t expect it to be this summer.”
As one of our regulars racks up the pool table again, he notes that it is not all bad for United.
After all, Marouane Fellaini finally found the back of the net for Belgium in their opening game against Algeria!
Manchester United fans. Do you think that Hummels is making a mistake turning down a move? Should you offer him a better deal in order to convince him to join? Let us know your thoughts below.
