Centre-half says he could move abroad when the time is right.
Manchester United target Mats Hummels has admitted he may leave Borussia Dortmund in the future but says he has already turned down a number of offers.
The 23-year-old has established himself as one of the most sought-after centre-backs in Europe whilst helping Dortmund to back-to-back Bundesliga titles and last season’s German Cup.
The Germany international signed a new five-year deal with the club in June but rumours linking with him big-money moves to Manchester United and Barcelona persist.
“One day I will say that I am keen on a transfer,” Hummels is quoted as saying by FourFourTwo.
“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.”
With Rio Ferdinand on the decline and Nemanja Vidic struggling with injury problems, it is understood that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is in the market for a centre-half in January or next summer.
The Scot has already raided Dortmund of Japanese playmakear Shinji Kagawa and is also tracking the club’s Polish striker Robert Lewandowski.
