Mats Hummels' agent rejects reported links to Manchester United
Mats Hummels has rejected rumours linking him with a winter transfer to Manchester United.
English media have claimed that the BVB captain wants out of the struggling Bundesliga club, but Hummels' father and agent said he will not be moving to Old Trafford.
Hummels, 26, failed to replicate the form he exhibited at the 2014 World Cup during the first half of the 2014-15 season. He missed large parts of the opening stages of the campaign through injury, and has struggled for form ever since.
But Hummels is not the only one who has failed to shine for Borussia Dortmund, and the 2013 Champions League finalists dropped into the relegation zone before the ongoing winter break in Germany.
Throughout the past few weeks, Hummels has been linked with a switch to Manchester United, with the Daily Express reporting on Thursday that at Old Trafford it is believed that Dortmund's "resolve may be weakening" and the centre-back has "grown increasingly open to a move to the Premier League."
But speaking to Sky News in Germany, Hermann Hummels, the World Cup winner's dad and agent, rejected the recent reports and said that the centre-back will not leave Borussia Dortmund.
"There is nothing to it," he said when asked about a potential winter transfer to Manchester United.
On Wednesday. Hummels, just like his equally sought-after teammate Marco Reus, resumed training at Borussia Dortmund after the winter break.
