Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels is likely to join Premier League club Manchester United this summer, reports the Daily Express.
The Germany international, who was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils in January, but there was no such transfer materialised.
The 26-year-old, who has a 65% heading success rate in the Bundesliga, will hope to carry his team to stave off relegation before the season’s close.
Jurgen Klopp’s men, who were recently Champions League finalists in 2012/13 season are currently rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga league table, and are in danger of relegation.
If they were to be relegated, it would be one of the biggest shocks in German football history.
Hummels has scored one league goal in 12 appearances this season.
