Mats Hummels in contract crisis, Manchester United interest reignited

German World Cup winner Mats Hummels has been the subject of Manchester United transfer rumours for a number of years now, with all of them amounting to nothing.

But his current contract negotiations with Borussia Dortmund are trembling, which has lured in big clubs to attempt to snap up the centre back.

According to CalcioMercato.it Dortmund have been trying to extend Hummels’ current contract, which expires in June 2017, so that they are not forced into selling him next season.

With another of the Yellow-and-Black’s big stars, Robert Lewandowski, the player’s contract was allowed to expire and so the striker, valued at £35 million at the time, went to league rivals Bayern Munich on a free.

Spanish Football website Fichajes.com has reported that due to the contract negotiations with Mats Hummels commencing other big clubs have come in to halt the extension and try to acquire the defender for themselves.

Manchester United is reported as being one of Hummels’ admirers.

The Red Devils central defence has featured one solid performer all season, Chris Smalling. He has been a beast at the back but United have been in need of a world class player there since Nemanja Vidić sustained a cruciate ligament rupture in the 2011/12 season.

There is every chance that Phil Jones could step up in the same way that Chris Smalling has but until then, United fans will still crave to once again have a world class centre back pairing.
