Arsenal and Manchester United fans excited by the prospect of World Cup winning defender Mats Hummels, 25, joining their clubs after summer-long speculation may loathe to see the images above.
Over the course of the weekend, Borussia Dortmund named Hummels as their new club captain - and, judging from the images above, it is a responsibility that the player will savour.
In the first picture, Hummels is seen smiling as he poses for the official photography to kick-start the new club season, with Dortmund having clearly healed themselves after the 4-0 slaughter to Liverpool on Sunday and ready for the next test that lies ahead - a German Super Cup showdown against the German football machine; Bayern Munich.
In the central photo, Hummels shares a joke with Matthias Ginter, while the bottom photo is the shot from the back as the squad as a whole line up for the official club photo.
Hummels, of course, is central in the final shot.
Previous reports indicated that Manchester United were readying a £29.5 million offer for the Dortmund defender, while Arsenal were embroiled in a two-way battle for the player's signature after Thomas Vermaelen was sold to Barcelona.
