Kagawa ex-teammate to join Man United

Mats Hummels refuses the idea to stay in Germany for the rest of his football career and is looking forward to move away to England or Spain if the right offer comes along.

The 23 years old German defender was linked with Manchester United and Barcelona before signing a new five-year deal with Dortmund in the summer.

“One day I will say that I am keen on a transfer,” Hummels told BILD.

“To play football in a new country would be flattering. I already had offers and one enquiry from these offers was really one of interest for me.

“But I told myself that the time is not right for such a move. There was a reason behind my recent contract extension. When you are a Borussia Dortmund player then you do not move to all clubs.

“In the Bundesliga it would just be about Bayern Munich, but this club has no shortage in my position. In Europe there are just about four to five clubs that would really interest me.”

Shinji Kagawa can be a factor to convince Hummels to join Manchester United If Sir Alex Fergusonis going to splash money to strength his age-ing defence.

Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic are getting old, while Jones and Smalling were regular visitors at the physio room! I think Hummels can be a good addition to the squad and Sir Alex won’t mind to add a young international defender to his team.

Although he may cause the gaffer headache in his weekly game selection, Hummels can be the new Vidic or Rio once they hang up their boots in two or three years. I also see him as an ideal partner for Jonny Evans whose form is peaking up game after game.

*I didn’t mention young defenders like Keane and Wootton because Sir Alex might keep them or maybe send them on loan next season.

Will United sign Dortmund defender on January or next summer?!

    We need to buy strong defender atleast one to stand in for vidict because we cannot aford to continue with this our porous defense if we really want to be succefull this season. I love manunited.

  2. Graeme says:

    Hummels would walk into our team, even if Rio and Vidic were fit…. Vidic might not be able to get back to his best because of his knee.

  3. Big Boss says:

    Agree with you mate

  4. Ak says:

    Hummel would be best signing for man utd

  5. bey says:

    i dnt knw ths player bt i thk we need som1 to play wth vidic or Rio coz our defence is very poor..

    I agree that Hummels would be a fantastic signing to play alongside Evans or Smalling with Vidic returning to Russia and the money from Vidic for Hummels.
    With the centre backs sorted I would like to see Rio play alongside Carrick for a couple of seasons until the likes of Powell, Petrucci and Tunnicliffe come of age.
    These three players when you see them in the reserves really excite me and they get better every season

  7. Big Boss says:

    Good view Trevor,

    Do you mean that Rio shirt up to play as defensive midfielder?

    I think Rio will be a backup defender who can appear at the end of the game to secure the result

    the reserves are doing well…however I wish SAF gives them more chance to play with the first XI

  8. Trevor says:

    I agree with Big Boss about the youngsters. I watch the reserves and I think as well as Powell I think Petrucci should get his chance because he has been outstanding the last two seasons.
    Its a shame he never even gets a chance to sit on the bench
