The three Bundesliga players Manchester United should target in the summer

Mats Hummels 2 Germany

Two players from Borussia Dortmund and one from Borussia Monchengladbach both feature.

With the summer fast approaching the chequebooks are at the ready as Premier League teams prepare themselves for another season.

The transfer market will again be fierce and once again the Bundesliga will be a popular venue for potential buyers.

But who should Manchester United target from German football?

Here are three options…

Lukasz Piszczek - Borussia Dortmund

A right-back must be a priority for United this summer.

They have been playing Antonio Valencia there of late, as the clear mistrust in Rafael's ability from Louis van Gaal becomes evidently more clear.

The Pole has had injury trouble recently but is still one of Europe's top full-backs.

Mats Hummels - Borussia Dortmund

No surprise here. Despite the good form of Phil Jones and Chris Smalling in recent weeks, a top class centre-back is needed at Old Trafford.

Hummels has not had a great season but he is world class, that is known. He would be perfect for United.

Granit Xhaka - Borussia Monchengladbach

This one may catch some by surprise, but the Swiss international deserves credit for his recent form.

He is an excellent, young and dynamic midfield option that United would certainly like to gamble on.
