Mats Hummels has criticised Borussia Dortmund for releasing a “sh*tty statement” concerning his future.
Hummels has one year remaining on his contract at Dortmund, and is the subject of interest for numerous clubs across Europe.
Manchester United have been chasing the central defender for years, but Dortmund stated that he would join Bayern Munich in the summer last week.
A Dortmund statement read: “Defender Mats Hummels has told Borussia Dortmund he wants to leave the club in the summer and join league rivals Bayern Munich for next season.
“Borussia Dortmund’s board has subsequently decided to make such a transfer dependent on whether Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund can agree a satisfactory fee. So far Bayern Munich have not made an offer.
“As a precaution, it is pointed out that with Mats Hummels – as at this time with all other players from Borussia Dortmund – no exit clause has been agreed and the player is thus tied to Borussia Dortmund until June 30, 2017.”
Speaking to Dortmund fans on Wednesday, Hummels rubbished the rumours.
“This sh*tty statement has made a misleading expression,” he said. “I have no idea why they had to do it.
The 27-year-old added: “Everything is possible and nothing is decided yet.”
