Louis van Gaal's appointment as the new United boss is set to spark a mass influx of talent at Old Trafford, with the Dutchman likely to be handed a substantial kitty with which to strengthen his squad.

There have been reports that Hummels is on van Gaal's wishlist, with the outgoing Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand leaving a void at the heart of United's defence.

However, the 25-year-old's father, and agent, insisted the Germany international is happy where he is, and has no plans to leave Dortmund this summer.

"I know Louis van Gaal from his time at Bayern Munich," Herman told talkSport.

"He's not contacted me about Mats moving to Manchester (United) though.

"I have heard some rumours but Mats is happy at Dortmund at the moment, and only thinking about the World Cup."
