The Germany international is set to cost around £47m, but the Red Devils are ready to sanction a move for the 25-year-old in a bid to improve their on-field performances.

Executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has recently revealed United’s finances and says that next summer will be the next focus for transfers and not the January window.

It means that despite Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic having not been adequately replaced at Old Trafford as yet, manager Louis van Gaal will have to make do with what he has currently until at least the end of the season.

The 21-time English champions have felt the pinch financially of not having qualified for the Champions League this term and having also spent almost £150m on new players over the summer, they will be a little more cautious in the New Year.

Hummels has been made a priority target for next summer however, and the club are confident of beating their rivals the Gunners to the signing of the 2014 World Cup winner.
