FC Bayern and Borussia Dortmund announced the agreement for the transfer of Mats Hummels on Wednesday. If the medical goes as planned, 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 German league title 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 teams at FC Bayern and moved on to Borussia Dortmund for the first time in 2008 after making his debut in an FC 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.
