Speaking of reported interested from Man United in signing him, Hummels said he admired players such as Gerrard who are one-club players.

“There are some [who stay at one club for their whole careers], and they are all really great players. Paolo Maldini of Milan, for example, or Steven Gerrard. I would have been so happy for him if he had won the championship with Liverpool.”

The German centre-back says he won’t move abroad for money, with United having spent huge money on Luke Shaw and Angel Di Maria this summer despite no European football on offer.

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