In his statement, Hummels admitted his decision to join Bayern was the “most difficult” of his life.

“I came to the decision to take on a new challenge for me, moreover, in my hometown, with mu family and many fiends that live there,” the German World Cup winner says in the translated statement published by DW Sports.

“I realise that it is difficult for some to understand my decision. But after eight-and-a-half really great years in Dortmund it was time for me to try something new again.”

Bayern have also signed Renato Sanches

Shortly before announcing the acquisition of Hummels, Bayern Munich also confirmed the signing of highly-rated Portugal international Renato Sanches.
