Bild: Hummels decides to leave Dortmund – Milan and Roma battle to land him

By Oliver Fisher -

The departure of Edin Terzic has not changed much for Mats Hummels who is still expected to leave the club, and AC Milan have again been mentioned as a potential destination.

Sky Germany claimed earlier this week that Terzic leaving would make Hummels consider extending with BVB given how bad relations between them had become.

However, if he did leave then he wishes to stay in Europe so that he can stay close to his family and his son, and a move to Italy is the most likely option with Milan mentioned as interested.

According to the latest from Bild (via Radio Rossonera), Hummels will also leave Borussia Dortmund in addition to the head coach Edin Terzic and the Rossoneri are considering signing him on a free transfer.

Dortmund’s memorable run to the the Champions League final has actually led to quite a sizeable overhaul, given the coach is leaving, Marco Reus is heading for Major League Soccer and Hummels seems to have decided to leave too.

The German source claim that Milan could engage in a duel with Roma to sign the central defender. Hummels would replace Simon Kjaer in the squad due to his charisma and experience, and that sense of leadership that will be lacking without the Dane around any more.

  1. Get him ASAP on a 2 year contract! He was a monster in the CL last season and we could really do with an experienced head in defence. Tomori can’t be the most experienced one ffs

  2. I’d take him. He’s a leader and he showed he’s more than capable to keep up with the best of them in champions league

    1. Finally, some sense. This is a no brainer.
      These deal needs to be closed. We have to have a stabilizing presence in all three phases, with a WINNING HISTORY. The intangibles of having champions is severely overlooked and unvervalued. Id love to see him in Milan

  3. I’d love to see him team up with Tomori and mentor Gabbia, due to their similarities. Would help to unlock his potential!

  4. I would have wanted Terzic at Milan instead of Fonseca.

    As far as Hummels, it’s a good idea as he’s a leader and still in great form.

  5. What many here dont know is that the reason he is leaving Dortmund is becouse he was staring arguments in the dressing room. Dortmund coach quit becouse of him too. Apparently he was acting bigger then the coach at the CL final at half time too. Not sure we need that kind of toxic ego in the dressing room.

    1. If that’s true then not ideal but a toxic influence like that wouldn’t have had the career he had or the run in the champions league Dortmund had last season.

  6. With his talent, even with a cigarette in his mouth, he easily brings the matches with a beer in his hand. Let’s get him.

  7. With Terzić leaving maybe Hummels will stay at Dortmund. He’s a good player but wants to run the dressing room as he sees fits.

    1. Ramano has confirmed this morning he’s leaving and wants to stay in Europe with Italy the most likely destination.

  8. Remember guys . He is the one that causing coach quit . His fight with coach at champion league final also make me unsure that ACM want to sign him . Better go for bungiorno or not signing CB if not getting bungiorno

  9. Losing leaders like ibra, giroud and kjaer is tough. The dressing room craves for someone like hummels. He’ll be the best option going into the season and could work wonders for other young cb’s to learn from him. Get hummels and and if possible pick dovbyk from girona and let camarda and colombo be the backup strikers. Bonus would be a replacement for tonali which has hurt milan in midfield. A specialist CDM is a must for other midfielders to flourish.

  10. He’s the exact sort of player we need. In fact we need two players like him – similar to when Kjaer and Ibra joined and instantly gave the club a backbone and substance.

    If we sign him then we can take a punt at DM with a younger player.

  11. We would benefit enormously if we can sign him. Thiaw and Simic would probably be the most improved players too if Hummels is willing to take them under his wing.
