No one originally planned on having a discussion to talk over the shocking potential transfer of Bayern Munich center-back Mats Hummels to Borussia Dortmund, but here we are.

In a special “quick hit” edition of Bavarian Podcast Works, we tackle the news surrounding Bayern and Dortmund’s alleged discussions on a move for Hummels. Initially, the reaction for many who saw the news yesterday was a state of shock. Today, however, brought further updates and while nothing has been confirmed, the discussions seem to have — allegedly — escalated into an agreement.

Will the move go through? If so, what does that mean for the future of Jerome Boateng at Bayern Munich? If both veterans ultimately leave, does that open the door for the Bavarians to make another run at Ajax center-back Matthijs de Ligt?

There are SO many ways things could transpire, so if you have some time give our breakdown a listen and tell us how you took the news in the comments below!
