Transfer balls: The Sun leads with news that Borussia Dortmund’s Mats Hummels has made a “pledge” to join Manchester United. Hummels is reported to have said that Manchester United is the only non-German team he will play for.

He is quoted:

“If I was to transfer abroad at some stage, then it would only be to Manchester United.”

That all looks pretty clear, then. Hummels will pick Manchester United over Real Madrid, say, Barcelona or any other English club. Or not. Because the Telegraph reports that Hummels made no such pledge:

But who says the Sun’s story is balls? Well, Mats Humemls does on twitter:

That translates to: “To clarify it: this supposed ‘promise’ is simply fictitious and that’s the friendly formation.”

Which is German for ‘tranfer balls’…
