Cape Town - Manchester United have been dealt a major blow after Germany defender Mats Hummels hints at staying at Dortmund.

The Mirror report that the World Cup winning defender has no intention of leaving Germany.

After playing a key role during Germany's successful World Cup campaign, the 25-year-old defender was linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Reports in England suggested Louis van Gaal was interested in making a January move for the player but Hummels himself has now poured cold water on that move.

"It's nice to hear that big clubs like that are interested in you" said Hummels.

"I take that as a compliment. But it doesn't influence me in any way, otherwise.

"We earn enough here in Dortmund." added the defender.

"There will always be someone who can pay more than BVB. But Dortmund have made a lot of progress during my time here. In any case: I believe that it's enough for me.

"If one day I start thinking about playing abroad, money won't be the reason. But I don't even think about that at the moment. We still have so much further to go here."
