Louis van Gaal wants to solve the defensive dilemma once and for all in the next summer transfer window.
The Red Devils need a top class central defender and reports in the media are indicating that they are the ones close to signing Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels.
The German international has had a torrid season in Budnesliga but remains one of the best center backs in the world.
According to Metro, Manchester United are closer to signing Hummels as the €50m star himself talks up transfer.
“It’s just thoughts going through my mind. It will all become clearer in the coming weeks.”
Metro has further reported that United already have tentative agreement to secure the signing of Mats Hummels.
The arrival of the World Cup winning star will take away a lot of burden from the shoulders of United’s best player this season David de Gea.
The Spanish goalie has single handedly saved many crucial points for the Red Devils with a very shaky defense in front of him.
Hummels will be the man to lead the defensive line for Manchester United and Louis van Gaal must not waste anymore time in sealing deal for the Kaiser.
