Mats Hummels linked With Arsenal

£30m star rules out Manchester United move; aims to eclipse Liverpool Legend

This is some bad news for Manchester United fans. According to reports from English Media Outlet METRO, Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels has ruled out a move to Manchester United in the near future. The £30m defender was United’s prime target in the by gone summer transfer window but Dortmund refused to let go their star at any price.


Hummels has now confirmed his desire to stay with the German giants and the 25 year old has now come out saying that he was never tempted with the prospect of playing in England. The defender though said that he was flattered to see big clubs are interested in him and believes its not just the cash on offer that he plays for. The World Cup winner also mentioned that there would be a significant number of clubs who can pay more than Borussia Dortmund but his progress at the Westfallenstadion outfit has been nothing short of success.

“There will always be someone who can pay more than BVB but Dortmund have made a lot of progress during my time here. In any case I believe it’s enough for me.

‘If one day I start thinking about playing abroad, money won’t be the reason. I don’t even think about that at the moment. We still have so much further to go here.”

The report also claims that Hummels sees himself playing at Dortmund for the rest of his career and the player went on to expreess his desire to emulate the careers of Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard and Paolo Maldini for the remainder of his playing days.

“There are some who stay at one club for their whole careers, and they are all really great players. Maldini of Milan, for example, or Gerrard. I would have been so happy for him if he had won the championship with Liverpool.”

Hummels also claimed, ” Lionel Messi always plays for Barcelona. Bastian Schweinsteiger and Thomas Müller, too, will perhaps play in Munich for ever.”
