Barcelona launch assault on Hummels

Barcelona are stepping up their interest to sign Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels, according to AS.

Even if captain Carles Puyol extended his contract until June 2016, the Catalans are not entirely happy with their defensive options and could delve deep into their pockets to sign a world-class centre-back.

AS understands that Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has made Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels his number one target.

The Germany international has moved to the top of Barca’s hit-list as soon as Thiago Silva completed a move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Borussia have slapped a €30 million price tag on their prized asset, but the Catalans seem prepared to make such an investment to attract one of world’s top defenders.

That is obviously provided Neymar does not arrive at Camp Nou next summer, since paying €70 million in a single transfer window would be too much for the La Liga giants.
