There are going to be big changes in the Bayern Munich squad this summer.

The transfer fee has not been officially disclosed by the two clubs.

Veteran defender Mats Hummels will hope to reboot his career at former club Borussia Dortmund next season after finding himself surplus to requirements with both Bayern Munich and Germany.

After Arjen Robben, Franck Ribery and Rafinha, Hummels is the latest senior player to leave Bayern in 2019. He also reached the 2013 Champions League final with them where they lost to Bayern.

Bayern broke their transfer record with an 80 million euro move for French World Cup victor Lucas Hernandez earlier this year, and have also shelled out 35 million euros for his French team mate Benjamin Pavard.

The 30-year-old becomes Dortmund's fourth summer signing, following the arrivals of Thorgan Hazard, Nico Schulz and Julian Brandt.
