Manchester United could renew their interest in Mats Hummels after it emerged that the World Cup winner is considering quitting Borussia Dortmund in 2016.

This is according to German publication Bild - and brought to our attention by talkSPORT - who understand United are keeping a close eye on the situation.

Hummels is reportedly struggling to adapt to life under manager Thomas Tuchel, who replaced Jurgen Klopp at Signal Iduna Park in the summer, and is poised to hand in a transfer request at the end of the season.

talkSPORT reckon this news will alert the Red Devils, who were strongly linked with Hummels earlier this year.

Louis van Gaal is still on the hunt for a reliable centre-back to partner Chris Smalling - Daley Blind isn’t a natural defender, Marcos Rojo has caused a few issues since his move from Sporting Lisbon, while Phil Jones is injury prone - and is a keen admirer of Hummels.

Dortmund ready to cash in on Hummels?

Borussia Dortmund might be open to offers for their talismanic defender next summer if reports of his unhappiness prove to be true.

The closer we get to 2017, when Hummels’ contract expires, the less money BVB can expect to receive for their skipper.

John Stones might be a better option

While Hummels possesses most of the key attributes you’d expect to find in a first-class central defender, his lack of pace should be a concern for Van Gaal.

Perhaps a better signing would be Everton’s John Stones, who is on the radar of Barcelona and Chelsea and has earned comparisons with United hero Rio Ferdinand.
