Mats Hummels refuses to rule out Borussia Dortmund exit

Mats Hummels has made it clear he is open to a move away from Borussia Dortmund at some point in his career.

The 26-year-old has been at Dortmund since 2009 having spent his entire career with Bayern Munich up until that point and Hummels has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United for a long time.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Hummels said he was only concerned with Dortmund at the moment but left the door firmly open for a move away from the German side.

“I am not really known as a globetrotter,” Hummels said.

“I have been with two clubs in 26 years. Loyalty is important to me.

“The only thing I am concerned with right now is to play better than in the first half of the season. I was not satisfied at all with myself as one can imagine.

“I have gotten offers from different clubs ever since I have been with Dortmund. That’s not a secret. I have always decided not to leave.

“I think I have made some good decisions and I want to make those in the future as well.

“I have never said I will stay until 2024 or 2030 or whenever… but I have stayed until today. I will stick to my way of not promising anything and maybe leave someday, instead of saying I will stay forever and then leave all of a sudden.”

Hummels’ comments will help fuel further speculation linking him with a move to Man United either in January or the summer because as far as non-committal statements go, Hummels is seemingly actively encouraging interest.

If United were to go approach Dortmund with a big bid, it would certainly test their resolve.
