According to Borussia Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke, the club will not stop German international Mats Hummels from joining Manchester United if the price is right.
The 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Bundesliga giants with the Red Devils heavily on his trail as manager Louis van Gaal is a huge admirer of the ball playing center ball like his predecessors David Moyes and Sir Alex Ferguson.
However, the Old Trafford Lords will have to face competition from rivals Bayern Munich and Premier League duo, Manchester City and Liverpool for his services.

One positive for interested clubs is that Dortmund is willing to sell as Watzke stated that it would be wrong for Dortmund to deny the centre-back a move, but added there would be no hesitation if clubs are unwilling to meet their asking price.
“To forbid Hummels to leave would be small-minded,” he said in the AUDI-Star-Talk on Monday.
“We have to accept that someone playing for Dortmund for eight years and getting [close to] 28 starts to think about his situation.
“If the club isn’t ready to pay a lot of money, he has a contract in Dortmund. And I am sure that he has no problem with continuing playing for Dortmund.”
Hummels is under contract with Dortmund until mid-2017.
