Manchester United and Arsenal will have to spend big to land German star

first_img Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels 1 Manchester United target Mats Hummels has revealed he deliberately asked for there to be no release clause in his new contract – in order to protect Borussia Dortmund.The centre-back renewed his contract with Dortmund back in 2012, but unlike fellow German stars Marco Reus and Mario Gotze he did not insert a buy-out clause.The Bundesliga outfit lost Gotze for £32million to Bayern Munich in 2013, while Reus – a target for Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Real Madrid – reportedly has a release-clause of £27.5m, which can be activated next summer.However, Hummels, who has also been linked with the Gunners, has dealt a blow to his pursuers by announcing that no such clause exists in his contract“That is something that might have been included in my contract if I had insisted on it,” Hummels told Transfermarkt.“But I deliberately decided not to do so. When my contract was renewed in 2012, I wanted to set an example.“If I want to leave for another club at some point, I want all parties to find the transfer 100% satisfactory.”last_img read more
