One United transfer done, £35million defender next on the list

On Thursday, Manchester United announced that they had signed Spanish goalkeeper Victor Valdes on a free-transfer, signing for the club on an 18-month-contract. But it doesn’t sound like Valdes will be the last player that is set to arrive into Old Trafford. According to report in the Daily Mirror, Manchester United are preparing a bid pf £35million for Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels.

Louis van Gaal has received a positive indication that the Mats Hummels to Manchester United signing could happen this January and that Ed Woodward is more than happy to front up the £35million that Dortmund are after for the defender. To keep up with all the latest transfer news, transferrumours has all the up to date news on a daily basis.

Mats Hummels would be a fantastic signing for Manchester United as they are looking for a leader at the back. The defence of United has caused concern for Louis van Gaal, the fall in form of Jonny Evans and the constant injury status of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones is one that does need addressing, and there is no better player available on the market than Mats Hummels.

£35million might sound like a lot of money, especially for a defender in this market, but Hummels is more than worth it as Louis van Gaal looks to create his super squad. The pieces of his jigsaw are starting to come together.
