Ever animated and outspoken Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp blasted reports linking Mats Hummels to Manchester United.
“What are we talking about today? Mats to Manchester United? For how much? €20m (£15.8m)? With those kind of sums can you forget that straight away. When papers mention such numbers you know it is garbage.” - Jurgen Klopp
Several news outlets in the past two days, or so, claimed that the 25-year-old defender will be heading to Old Trafford for a fee of £16million.
The said incredible stories led the 47-year-old to react with some spicy words, when he was asked to comment on the matter.
"If that's not a bullshit story, I'll eat a broom stick," said the 2-time Bundesliga winner, as posted by a respected German journalist on social media.

Klopp also revealed that attacking playmaker Marco Reus, who is also linked with United, will not be leaving anytime this summer.
"I can assure everyone that there are no signs that those two players want to leave. Marco and Mats will play for us next season," he said.
"What are we talking about today? Mats to Manchester United? For how much? €20m (£15.8m)? With those kind of sums can you forget that straight away. When papers mention such numbers you know it is garbage."
Hummels' suggested market value is in the region of £30million, while Reus' is £44million.
