Man United agree £16m Dortmund raid

Manchester United have agreed a deal to bring Borussia Dortmund ace Mats Hummels to Old Trafford, according to the Express.

The 25-year-old centre-back has been linked with a move to the Premier League for most of the summer, with United constantly mentioned as the front-runners for his signature.

And after a number of impressive displays for Germany this summer, playing a huge part in their fourth World Cup triumph, new Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal has identified him as the ideal replacement for Nemanja Vidic.
