Manchester United for Marco Reus, Real Madrid in for Ilkay Gundogan, Mats Hummels wanted by Barcelona - the respective futures of Borussia Dortmund's most notable players are the subjects of speculation like few others across Europe.

Dortmund have established themselves as something of a nursery from which the continent's most prominent clubs can snatch players, with Shinji Kagawa and Mario Götze having departed in consecutive summers, and Robert Lewandowski on his way out soon.

Reus, Gundogan or Hummels could be next, with all three frequently linked with departures, with the first two in particular touted for potential exit in the recently closed transfer window.

Manchester United were credited with interest in both Reus and Gundogan was David Moyes strived to bring midfield reinforcements to Old Trafford, but eventually acquired Juan Mata from Chelsea in a club record deal.

And says Hummels, himself often mentioned as a Barcelona target, the wanted men of the Westfalenstadion are able to joke about the never-ending rumours.

"We do have our jokes about it and go with it. We are really much more relaxed than many believe," Hummels told Welt when asked directly about Reus and Gundogan.

"Also, because we have great confidence in the people in our club's management. I assume that now already the new season will be planned and - if more players should leave - good replacements will be fetched.

"Last summer, three top transfers were managed in Sokratis [Papastathopoulos], Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre Emerick Aubameyang."
