Chelsea are ready to weigh in on any potential move by Manchester United for German international centre back Mats Hummels, according to The Mirror.
The Germany international has been touted with a move away from Borussia Dortmund for a long time and looks likely to be on his way out come the summer transfer window, and Manchester United looked his most likely diestination until now.
However, following interest from Chelsea, who seem to be trying to replace stalwart centre-back and captain John Terry before he retires, the future of the German is, to say the least, uncertain.
With both Manchester United and Chelsea interested in his signature, the move would then be up to Mats Hummels, considering both clubs meet the expected £37 million valuation.
At Chelsea, a starting spot every week may not be as definite as with Manchester United, though with the Blues looking to secure the Premier League title this season, trophies look more forthcoming at Stamford Bridge.
