Although, it is believed that the January transfer market is going to be short of quality players as they might not be willing to leave their clubs. Nonetheless, in the present transfer market, money is the major factor that determines players transfer.
Matt Hummel has been in the radar of Manchester United in the summer as the Red Devils look to bolster their thin central defensive line. It is now looking that the player could complete a move in January after failing to do so in the summer.
Borrussia Dortmund’s chief Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted that the 26-year-old tough tackling centre back was close to joining United and fears the deal could be done in January.
In the spring, Hummels was joining Manchester United, (Henrikh) Mkhitaryan shortly afterwards was in Turin (Juventus) and (Ilkay) Gündogan at Bayern Munich.”
“In the end they are all still here – and we have remained calm,”
“I’m pretty sure that it will be something like that again (in January).”
“We will fight for every one of our stars with teeth and claws and can also compete financially.” Said Watzke to Kicker
We are sure in for lots of transfer activities in January. United will want to maintain their defensive record despite. United have let in the least goals in the Premier League this season in the Premier league.
