The German centre-back won the World Cup with his country in Brazil in 2014 and has played a key role in winning the Bundesliga for the last three years running for Bayern.
But before he was a stalwart in Bavaria, Hummels was a crucial figure in Jurgen Klopp’s Dortmund team – and won two titles with them in 2011 and 2012, and according to German newspaper Bild, he’ll return to the Signal Iduna Park for a fee in the region of around £25 million for a second stint with the black and yellows.
The transfer is made all the more intriguing by the fact that Bayern only pipped Dortmund to the league title last season on the final day, and Hummels played for them 38 times – so will Germany’s biggest club regret letting him return to BVB?
