Mats Hummels set for €38m Dortmund return

Mats Hummels set for €38m Dortmund return

There are going to be big changes in the Bayern Munich squad this summer.

The fee, reported to be £33.8m, is a club record transfer fee and sees Hummels - a key part of BVB's back-to-back championships under Jurgen Klopp - follow in the footsteps of Mario Götze, who also returned to Dortmund following a spell in Munich. Both clubs decided not to disclose any financial details.

World Cup victor Mats Hummels on Wednesday completed a move back to Borussia Dortmund after three years at German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.

In addition, the recently retired German global was part of the Borussia Dortmund team that reached the 2013 Champions League final under the guidance of current Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Bayern broke their transfer record with an 80 million euro move for French World Cup victor Lucas Hernandez earlier this year, and have also shelled out 35 million euros for his French team mate Benjamin Pavard.

His return has prompted mixed reactions among Dortmund fans.

According to Facebook and its partners, local currencies and Libra may be swapped at currency exchange houses or other businesses. Ultimately, the company aims for its digital currency to replace regular money for a wide variety of use cases.

The defender completed a return to the Bavarian giants when he signed a five-year deal in July 2016, and won seven trophies with them, including three league titles and two German Super Cups.

Hummels is likely to face Bayern in his first game since rejoining Dortmund.

They have already signed Nico Schulz, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard with Hummels set to join too, providing there are no problems with his medical.

Have Dortmund made the right decision to bring Hummels back?

Dortmund lost the 2019 Bundesliga title to Bayern despite leading the league by nine points in late 2018.
