If you told me a few weeks ago Mats Hummels would play again in the Black and Yellow I’d probably laugh you out of the room or shadow block(block-unblock-mute) you on Twitter. But here we are. Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Mats Hummels from Bayern Munich pending a medical. The 30 year old center back comes from Bayern Munich but payed for Dortmund for most of his career. He was a critical part of the team that won two titles and got to the Champions league final. The fee is reported to be somewhere between 30 million euros and 38 million euros.

If your a newer BVB fan you might wonder why so many fans are angry that we have signed a player who will most likely help us win. Gotze was resigned from Bayern and he only really received fan hate for a short period of time. Hummels is a little different in that he criticized Lewy and Gotze for leaving for Bayern then did so himself. Many fans felt this a worse betrayal then the two before him.

No matter the hate for him, whether you like it or not, he is black and yellow now. He will be Dortmund’s biggest ever transfer should the medical go ok. Welcome back Mats.

Please try to keep the comments civil. I will time you out if you go to far.
