Bundesliga defender open to Old Trafford switch, but only if David Moyes secures a Champions League berth for 2014/15.
Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels has reportedly told Man United he is keen on securing a move to Old Trafford according to Football Direct News.
The 25 year old former Bayern Munich man does however have one proviso in relation to his willingness to move to the Premier League side, namely that David Moyes’s side secure a Champions League berth for next season, something that seems hugely unlikely.
Man United currently sit 12 points off the top four and have a mountain to climb to defeat Olympiakos having lost the first leg of their encounter with the Greek side 2-0 earlier this week.
Hummels is into his seventh season at the Westfalenstadion but may be ready for a fresh challenge with Jurgen Klopp’s side some way off the Bundesliga title pace.
The German international is considered one of the best centre-backs in European football and would be an ideal replacement for Nemanja Vidic, with the Serbian likely to leave Man United this summer with his contract set to expire in the summer.
Moyes will also see Rio Ferdinand’s deal come to an end and the 35 year old seems unlikely to be offered a new contract so there is certainly a real need to bring in defensive reinforcements.
