Manchester United have reportedly signed German defender Mats Hummels for a fee of $28 million.
$28 million is a fair price for a defender of his caliber, as Hummels showed in the World Cup that he is a World Class defender. He fills an immediate need for Manchester United's new manager Louis van Gaal and should be a starter on day one. van Gaal is an attacking minded coach but Manchester's defensive line is looking better and better and Hummels should be a great fantasy option if he does indeed join the Premier League.

England Starting XI vs Costa Rica: Foster; Jones, Cahill, Smalling, Shaw; Milner, Lampard, Wilshere, Barkley, Lallana; Sturridge.

In a weird move, Roy Hodgson named his starting lineup yesterday. He chose to start a lot of players that didn't feature in the first two games in a very experimental lineup that doesn't feature Wayne Rooney and a few of the other stars that were supposed to carry England through the World Cup. Hodgson will get a lot of blame for England's performance at the World Cup and this lineup will also be questioned.

Yesterday brought us rumors of Thomas Vermaelen to Manchester United and today brings rumors of Chris Smalling and/or Tom Cleverley heading in the opposite direction.

Let's start with the reality that swap deals almost never happen in soccer so we're taking this with a grain of salt. As far as swap rumors go though, including Chris Smalling in this sort of transaction wouldn't be a bad idea for either side. Why would Arsenal want him? He's young, versatile, English (meaning he counts as home grown), theoretically still has some upside, and isn't sufficiently accomplished that he would have a case to complain when Mertesacker and Koscielny start ahead of him. The case for bringing in Cleverley as makeweight is less clear unless his regression is being blamed on David Moyes.
