Hummels To Join Bayern Munich

share on:

Bayern Munich have announced the capture of Borussia Dortmund captain, Mats Hummels.

The defender already stated his desire to return to his boyhood club and follow in the footsteps of Lewandowski and Gotze.

And both clubs have announced the switch, with Hummels signing a five year deal with a club he left in 2008 for Dortmund.

The 27-year-old appears set to captain BVB for one last time when Thomas Tuchel’s side meet Bayern in the DFB-Pokal final on May 21.

Hummels told Dortmund’s official website: “I have not made this decision easily after eight-and-a-half successful years at BVB.

“I was always proud and still am, to wear the BVB jersey and to be part of this exceptional team. Before I return to my hometown in the summer, we have a large, common goal all: once again to bring the DFB-Pokal to Dortmund.

“For that I will give everything just like my team-mates. I wholeheartedly thank my team-mates, all the staff and fans for this long and wonderful time in Black and Yellow.”

Confirmation of Hummels’ signing quickly followed Bayern’s capture of prodigal Portuguese winger Renato Sanches from Benfica in a deal that could be worth €45 million.
