Manchester United: Dream target blasts his own ‘pathetic’ team – January move on?



If Manchester United polled their fans, to see who they would most like to sign for the club in January, you would imagine that a central defender would be in the top three most popular responses.

Manchester United have capable defenders but they are young and inexperienced. Furthermore, there isn’t an obvious leader in there yet. And the signing of Mats Hummels could be the perfect solution.

He’s widely regarded as a top target for Manchester United and the player himself has put his suitors on alert as he has slammed Borussia Dortmund’s current form.

“We’ve managed pretty well at home in recent weeks, but not at all away.

“It’s pretty astonishing that we are so pathetic.”

Whether Hummels would want to be seen to be deserting a sinking ship is debatable. But he would be a massive signing for Manchester United. He’s mobile and physically commanding, has great aerial threat and wonderful passing range. He could be the long term successor to Rio Ferdinand.

With Dortmund still battling away in The Champions League Hummels may well decide that he wants to hang on until the end of the season. But it’s pretty safe to assume that Manchester United would be keen on a January signing if there was any chance of his club letting him go.

Let’s take a look at the lad in action. Manchester United fans: perfect winter signing?
