Yesterday, or it could have been the day before, we mentioned that any possible deal to bring Mats Hummels to Old Trafford was over.

Reports coming out of mainland Europe intimated that the 26-year-old World Cup winner had decided to continue to offer his defensive excellence to Borussia Dortmund.

However, there is an interesting suggestion carried in the Daily Mirror this morning.

It infers that Hummels rejected a possible move to Old Trafford due to the fact that Manchester United had taken too long to declare an interest in him.

What?

And there was me thinking that our interested had been common knowledge for many a month with numerous column inches decorating many a news vehicle both here in the UK and the mainland.

Strange!
