Hummels appears set to admire Jurgen Klopp reunion

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels has sparked support among Liverpool fans after tweeting that he enjoyed Liverpool’s 4-0 bashing of Arsenal.

The 28-year-old has therefore gained support of the Reds’ fans who urge him to join the Premier League side.

The Reds humiliated their league rivals Arsenal on Sunday and the Bayern star shows his support for Jurgen Klopp’s side who are coming from a midweek Champions League play-off second leg win over Bundesliga side Hoffenheim.

Goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge were enough to secure a deserving victory for the Reds at Anfield and Hummels tweeted he was enjoying the match.

The Bergisch Gladbach-born defender was replying to questions whether he loved the way Liverpool humbled Arsenal, and his response was simple and precise: “I am. Another strong performance from LFC, pretty impressive right now…”

And after the tweet, the former Borussia Dortmund centre-back gained a lot of support from Liverpool fans who think the centre-half should reunite with Jurgen Klopp on Merseyside.

Hummels played under Klopp before departing the pair parted ways  with the German tactician leaving for Meyerside club in 2015 while Hummels left for Allianz Arena in 2016.

Hummels had previously volunteered to donate 1% of his salary as charity in support of Juan Mata’s  Common Goal Charity and while reactions have trailed the gesture with some suggesting he is obsessed with a move to Premier League, the latest could be another one for the Bayern youth academy graduate.

“You and [Joel] Matip would be quality together Mats,” one fan wrote.

“Hand in a transfer request and push for a move to Liverpool. Reunite with Klopp,” another added.

“There’s a centre-back spot up for grabs if you want it…” a third supporter said.

While another simply wrote: “Announce Hummels.”

Hummels joined Bayern last summer on a five-year deal following an eight-and-a-half spell at their biggest rivals Borussia Dortmund, dunring which he won the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal titles and reaching the Champions League Final in 2013.

He had earlier hinted he could leave Bayern and return to his former club, and the latest twist could be a move to England to reunite with Klopp.

“Theoretically, yes, I would, even though I probably really shouldn’t say this,” he told German TV show Schulz and Bohmermann.

Liverpool are in the market for a centre-half and having struggled to get a deal for Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk all summer, Hummels could just be the man that will save them from the goal-dashing spree this time.

« We do not want him at Real Madrid anymore »

Real Madrid are in a bad situation in the league, the club of Casa Blanca is currently third in Liga behind Valencia and Barça, the Catalans have taken a big lead, and this could definitely make them lose the championship in the winter. And a Madrid club player is highlighted in these poor results.

101 million euros for his transfer, 23 injuries since, 73 matches missed or 55% of the matches of his team. Statistics that would drive any coach and / or leaders crazy. You have it ?

These are the figures of Gareth Bale since his arrival at Real Madrid in the summer of 2013 from Tottenham. Whoever has played only nine games in the year 2017/2018 seems to have seriously undermined the patience of its leaders. Just back from a calf injury, he was summoned by the Welsh side to face France in a friendly last Friday, but made the choice to stay in Madrid to prepare for the derby against Atletico Madrid. But, the blow, the Welsh injured during training last Thursday and will be absent about a month.

What continue to fuel the rumors of transfers but especially what cause irritation of the board leader. The latter, tired of not being able to align their triplet « BBC », have made a decision that should be irrevocable, according to the Madrid newspaper AS: It must leave this summer. And the Spanish media also explains that the president of the Madrilenian club, Florentino Perez, added:

« We do not want him at Real Madrid anymore »
Yet strongly criticized last season, Bale had managed to avoid a departure last summer, claiming to want to win at Real Madrid. This year, his start to the season does not plead in his favor and he seems to have exhausted all his jokers in the Spanish capital. The departure of the Welsh international therefore seems to have been recorded.

The rumor of a return to the Premier League, Manchester United in particular, has been reactivated but the number of contenders could quickly evolve in view of the quality of the player. Be careful though, the Welsh is signed until 2022, and Florentino Perez is determined not to sell his player.

Unless a return to its best level, it is difficult to see how the Welsh international could reverse the situation. Zinedine Zidane even found his replacement for 100 million euros.
