Reports are rife, in one red-top publication, relating to Manchester United splashing out £50 million this summer.

It seems that United are looking at making a double swoop for the Bundesliga stars – Mats Hummels and Lars Bender.

Hummels has impressed United with his impressive displays at the heart of the Borussia Dortmund defence whilst Bender has impressed with his attacking midfield displays for Bayer Leverkusen.

Both players are still only 23 years of age and valued at £25 million each but a sticking point, as the red top points out, is that both players are currently tied to long term contracts!
