“Mats Hummels has communicated his desire to leave the club in the summer and wants to join Bayern Munich next season”
“Borussia Dortmund’s board has subsequently decided to make such a change depending on whether Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund can agree a satisfactory fee. So far, Bayern Munich has not made an offer.
“As a precaution, it is pointed out that with Mats Hummels – as at present with all other players from Borussia Dortmund – no exit clause has been agreed and the player is logically tied to Borussia Dortmund until June 30, 2017.”
Hummels had been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League over the last 12 months with Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and both Manchester clubs reported to be interested in him.
However, they look set to miss out on his signature given his preference to return to Bayern.
