Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels could join Manchester United this summer, so here is a closer look at the central defender.

Having started his footballing career with Bayern Munich as a six-year-old in 1995, Hummels progressed through the various youth ranks at the club.

His talent was obvious but his time at the club ended when he secured a permanent move to 2009, which came after a one-year loan spell with Dortmund.

Having made just one league appearances for Bayern, Hummels worked hard to gain himself a first team place at Dortmund and he has since gone on to play 240 games for the club.

The German international was also part of his country’s World Cup winning side last summer and has appeared 39 times.
