Man United have tabled an opening offer of £21.5m for Mats Hummels, according to German publication Bild.

The German defender who is also a target for Liverpool is expected to follow Jurgen Klopp out of the door at Dortmund this summer.

Hummels has a contract at the club which runs until June 2017, and United will almost certainly be forced to increase their opening bid in order to secure his services.

World class central defender come at a premium and there is never a guarantee they will adjust to the rigours of English football.

Man City spent in excess of £30m on Eliaquim Mangala last year and the French international has struggled to adapt in the Premier League.

Video: Man United manager reads out transfer list

Man United manager Louis van Gaal read out a transfer list prepared by one of the club's supporters during Monday's Manchester United Foundation Dream Day.

Supporters who suffer from life limiting illnesses watched the team train yesterday before meeting some of their heroes at the complex.

In a touching video, the cheeky fan handed Van Gaal a list of players he should buy this summer, claiming he had "prepared some homework" for the Dutch manager.

Van Gaal duly obliged and pocketed the piece of paper before signing the fan's replica shirt.

Manchester United enquire about forward, PSV confirm

Manchester United have enquired about PSV forward Memphis Depay, according to the Dutch champions.

"We have had a telephone call from them (Manchester United) about him," PSV's technical director Marcel Brands said on Dutch television.

"But no talks have been held. Several top clubs have expressed interest."

Depay is the leading scorer in the Eredivisie with 20 goals this season and has helped fire PSV to their first title win in seven years.

Tottenham Hotspur tried and failed to land Depay last year and the sum of money Manchester United will need to pay will have to be more than the £14.4m Spurs offered, says Brands.

"It will be much higher than the offer from Tottenham Hotspur," said Brands, "He will be very expensive."
