The Reds Devils are set to launch a big money bid for the Borussia Dortmund captain and are also keeping tabs on his teammate
According to fresh reports, Louis van Gaal has given the green signal to the club’s authorities to make a formal approach for Mats Hummels who is keen on leaving Borussia Dortmund after a forgettable start to the first half of the current Bundesliga campaign.
Moreover, Louis van Gaal is also taking a keen notice on the contractual situation of BVB star Ilkay Gundogan who for the time being, has not signed a contract extension that has been offered to him.
The midfielder has in past attracted a lot of interest from the residents of Old Trafford and van Gaal is pretty keen on signing a player who could possibly fit into his football philosophy.
BVB have given Gundogan until the end of season to sign the contract extension and will simply transfer list him if he does not sign the deal.
Mats Hummels on the other hand, is becoming more and more keen on signing for the Red Devils this January despite knowing that his actions could offend the club’s fans. However, the player cannot wait until summer to make a move to Old Trafford.
