The Daily Mail reports that United have been given the go ahead to complete the deal and Louis van Gaal will try to secure the German’s signature at the end of this season.

Hummels, says the reports, is finally prepared to sever ties with Dortmund, though one stumbling block could be his price-tag.

BVB are determined to get at least £36 million for their star man.

A deal could bring an end to one of the more protracted transfer deals of recent memory, with United and Hummels being linked with each other in almost every transfer window for three years.

With Dortmund likely to fail to qualify for next season’s Champions League, Hummels is said to be hoping United can clinch a deal over the summer.
