Salihamidzic: 'We wish Mats all the best'
FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund announced the agreement on the transfer of Mats Hummels on Wednesday. If the medical goes to plan then the 30-year-old central defender will leave FC Bayern in the summer after three years at the club.
"On behalf of FC Bayern, I would like to thank Mats Hummels very much. With him we have won the Bundesliga three times and last season the DFB Cup as well. Mats played a big part in that success," declared FC Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic the day after the transfer agreement. "We wish Mats and his family all the best for the future."
Mats Hummels came through the youth system at FC Bayern and moved on to Borussia Dortmund for the first time in 2008 after making his debut in a Bayern shirt.
The central defender returned to Munich as a World Cup winner in 2016. He made 118 appearances for FC Bayern, scoring eight goals for the Reds.
