On Monday, German football club FC Bayern Munich completed the signing of Mats Hummels, the captain of Bayern's rivals Borussia Dortmund. 27-year-old defender Hummels, who was an academy player at Bayern before moving to play for Borussia Dortmund, agreed to a five-year deal.




I'm looking forward to everything that awaits me at FC Bayern. I'm very excited.

Hummels underwent medical tests on Monday before signing the contract. Bayern's chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said "We're delighted to welcome Mats back to FC Bayern, [...] Not only are we strengthening our squad with a world-class centre-back, but also with a player who accepts responsibility and who is our own youth product. First of all we wish him a successful Euro 2016."((de))

Hummels joined the Bavarians in 1995 when he was six years old. He played only one Bundesliga match for the Reds before he was loaned to Dortmund and later signed for them. He played his last game for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday in the DFB-Pokal Cup final, which Bayern won 4–3 on penalties.

After the signing was completed, he said "Saying goodbye to Dortmund was difficult for me of course. It was similar to 2008, when it was the other way around [...] Now I'm looking forward to everything that awaits me at FC Bayern. I'm very excited."((de))
