Manchester United target Mats Hummels has revealed that his future will be clear in the coming weeks.

The German defender has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer and had admitted earlier in the month that he is considering a move abroad, as he feels it will give a much needed boost to his career.

"Basically... I think moving abroad will be good for my professional and personal well-being. Eventually, I'd like to leave the Bundesliga," the German international said.

Dortmund have had a wretched time in the Bundesliga this campaign and found themselves at the bottom of the table following the winter break, but have since rediscovered a bit of form and are currently in 10th place, 15 points behind Bayer Leverkusen in fourth place.

Hummels is Louis van Gaal's priority target for the summer as he looks to strengthen his defence and will look to complete a deal sooner rather than later.

The German club are willing to listen to offers for the player, and CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has confirmed that the Dortmund skipper is mulling over his future and they are willing to let him leave if an interested club match their valuation of the player.

"Mats held talks with me and [sporting director] Michael Zorc 14 days ago, and informed us that he is mulling over his future," Watzke said.

However, the player has come out and confirmed that he has not made any decision regarding his future, but admitted that it will be decided in coming weeks.

"That doesn't mean that I am leaving, it just means I'm reflecting," Hummels said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.

"There's no particular tendency one way or the other. It's just thoughts going through my mind. It will all become clearer in the coming weeks," the German World Cup winner added.
