Hummels may be bound for Manchester United from Borussia Dortmund as the two teams engage in negotiations, according to the Daily Mail.

Hummels was part of Germany's World Cup winning side, and the transfer price tag is speculated to be near 16 million. The veteran defender would provide experience and strength in United's back line after losing Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand, and Patrice Evra this summer.

Hummels, who suffered a groin injury last Monday against Portugal, started and played all 90 minutes of Germany's 2-2 draw with Ghana on Saturday at the World Cup.

After scoring a goal against Portugal, Hummels was back to his normal defensive self against Ghana. He didn't appear to be affected by his groin at all, and he will be an important piece for the Germans when they face the USA in their final group stage match, needing a result to advance to the knockout stage.

Hummels suffered a slight thigh injury during Germany's World Cup opener against Portugal on Monday, FIFA.com reports.

Hummels actually scored in the 4-0 victory before suffering the injury, but coach Joachim Low did not seem overly concerned saying Hummels "had a knock to the thigh, but I assume that it wasn't too serious."

Hummels scored off a header in the 32nd minute of Germany's 4-0 rout of Portugal in their World Cup opener on Monday.

Hummels took a Toni Kroos corner and banged it home for Germany's second goal, as he was untouched heading into the box. It was a fine performance for Hummels, who could continue to be a solid defensive contributor in most fantasy formats against Ghana and the United States.
