Manchester United 4/11 to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels
Competition: Premier League
Market: Man Utd to sign Mats Hummels
Odds: 4/11 @ Ladbrokes
Manchester United were dealt a boost in their pursuit of Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels, with reports suggesting the German centre-back is considering an exit from the Westfalenstadion this summer. Such news paves the way for United to sign their transfer target, and they are expected to make their interest official in the coming week.
Manager Louis van Gaal has made no secret of his desire to sign another central defender this summer, and one that would come straight into the side to bolster the backline. Hummels won the World Cup with Germany last summer, and was a key component of the back-to-back Bundesliga title-winning side under Jurgen Klopp. He’s a strong imposing figure in the defence, and reads the game incredibly well.
United do have options at the back, but are lacking a leader and commanding presence that can see them stand up to best in the league, as well as Europe, upon their return to the Champions League for next season. Ladbrokes are giving odds of 4/11 for Hummels to join Manchester United this summer.
