I hope United's interest in Hummels isn't real. Signing him would be an absolute disaster. Hummel bad play dates back to the year Dortmund made it to the CL final. He had a decent showing in the WC this past summer but his league play has been a stark contrast to the summer. Granted he's been dealing with some injuries but that aside, his play has been awful & a big reason why Dortmund was doing so awful in the first half of the campaign.
I agree w/ him being risky but I also think he hasnt been paired with a pacey CB to make up for him speed.. during the wc he had Boateng. I think if we partner him with a laporte you will see him regain some of that form.. but that pairing is insanely expensive.. that price tag for hummels needs a reality check tho.. especially after this yr! I'm with you though, i think Godin/laporte would be the best option but it doesnt seem like LVG fancies Godin. No clue why not either, dude would be perfect for the EPL
