1. Mats Hummels

Transferred to Borussia Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund’s defence is going to get significantly better with their new player, Mats Hummels in the team. The Germany international has also moved to Borussia Dortmund earlier from Bayern back in 2008 and then again joined Bayern and has also won three Bundesliga titles with a domestic double during his time at the Allianz Arena. Hummels has reportedly rejected Manchester United to join hands with Borussia Dortmund in a £33 million deal. We can say that it is an astute move  for Borussia Dortmund!
