Manchester United are believed to be back in the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels while a move could be a step closer if Liverpool decide to send out their centre-back on loan to Germany, Mirror reports.
Louis van Gaal has been tracking the German World Cup winner throughout the summer and looks to be boosted by news that the Bundesliga side are trying to bring in Tiago Llori from Anfield.
An estimated £20 million bid was believed to be on the table with Jurgen Klopp’s side looking to find potential replacements for the defender.
Van Gaal is in desperate need of a world class defender to reinforce his 3-5-2 formation as United only have Jonny Evans, Chris Smalling, and Phil Jones capable of playing the role.
With funds to make the deal happen not a factor for the Red Devils, they will be open to upping their bid in order to do all they can to acquire one of their top transfer targets.
