Hummels: No Juve contact

Rumours of Juventus interest in Mats Hummels look to have ended once and for all with the player’s denial of any possible deal.

Earlier this week, reports paired the 23-year-old Borussia Dortmund centre-back with a move to the Bianconeri, on the understanding that Coach Antonio Conte had specifically requested him.

However, along with the reported valuation of the Bayern Munich target at €18m, the defender himself has suggested a move is looking unlikely.

“Was I approached by Juventus? I have just renewed by contract with Borussia Dortmund,” he told reporters on Friday.

“I have a long agreement with them in place, up to 2017, so I’m totally uninterested in the rumours circulating around my name.”

Hummels played in Germany’s Euro 2012 semi-final elimination to Italy last night.
