Manchester United have agreements in place to sign Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels and PSV winger Memphis Depay in the summer according to the Sunday World.

United have been rumoured to be attempting to get their summer transfer business done early and the latest reports state that Dortmund's Hummels is a step closer to a big-money move to Old Trafford. 


Many expected this for a while now, with United making failed attempts last year to sign the German. However, in the last few weeks Hummels himself has stated that he is interested in a move abroad whilst Dortmund have said they are willing to listen to offers for the 26-year old. United are expected to pay upwards of £30 million, although this isn't expected to be a problem.

The second player that has been linked regularly to United is Memphis Depay, the man that current Reds boss Louis van Gaal brought on to the international stage, during his spell with the Netherlands. Unsurprisingly, Depay is said to hold van Gaal in high regard and the most recent stories say that the 21-year old wants to move to United.


Depay himself has teased the move on his personal twitter account by favoriting tweets linking himself to Old Trafford. The posts have since been removed. Depay's current boss won't step in the way should a big club come in for him. Phillip Cocu said: "I think he's ready for the next step, and I think he'll leave. That's what we're anticipating."

The positive news comes off the back of United's 3-1 win against Aston Villa, sending them third in the table, ahead of neighbours Manchester City, ahead of the local derby next weekend.
