Borussia Dortmund have announced that Mats Hummels has asked to leave the club to join Bayern Munich this summer.
The defender’s future at Signal Iduna Park has long been up in the air, with speculation he would request a transfer in the close-season.
And the club have confirmed he has made an official plea to move across the Bundesliga.
“Mats Hummels has informed us of his wish to leave the club in the summer and he wants to join league rivals Bayern Munich,” a statement published on the BVB website reads.
Dortmund add that they would only consider selling Hummels to the Bavarians if an offer of “extraordinary value” was made.
At the present time, the statement affirms, there has been no formal offer for the centre-back.
“The club would like to point out that Mats Hummels, as is the case of the rest of the Borussia Dortmund team, has no agreed release clause,” Dortmund explain.
