Manchester United have been handed a significant boost in their pursuit of Mats Hummels, according to the Daily Express website.
United have been heavily linked with the German defender as Louis Van Gaal seeks to add a world class name to his back-line.
And Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp told DW Sport that his coveted defender is contemplating a move away from the Bundesliga.
He said: “He’s good enough for Manchester United. He’s told me he’s thinking things over.”
