Around a Monday before the end of the season, the guesswork about the future of Mats Hummels at Borussia Dortmund continues. The vice-captain is said to have still not made a decision about his whereabouts at BVB.
This is reported by “Bild”. Accordingly, Hummels, whose contract expires in the summer, has a new one-year contract but is hesitant to sign it.
It is said that the 34-year-old is not concerned with financial issues. Hummels is ready to cut back on his previous top salary of allegedly around ten million euros per year in the event of an extension. BVB is said to only offer him seven million euros for his last year of contract.
The 2014 world champion is also toying with the idea of moving to another club, possibly in the North American MLS, or ending his career.
BVB: Meeting between Mats Hummels and Sebastian Kehl
It has been agreed with BVB that Hummels is taking his time when making his future decisions.
The “Ruhr Nachrichten” reported about two weeks ago about a 45-minute appointment with sports director Sebastian Kehl, which is said to have been “very relaxed”.
It could also have been about career after career. According to Hummels, this perspective is also important.
Mats Hummels at BVB (again) important
In terms of sport, the veteran, who in the meantime was only a substitute, recently collected a few arguments for his importance at BVB. In the 4-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt, Hummels was one of Dortmund’s best.
In the final spurt of the season, coach Edin Terzic will probably have to rely on the central defender from the start, as teammate and competitor Nico Schlotterbeck is said to be at risk of losing the season due to his thigh injury.
