Marco Reus is regarded as one of the best wingers in world football, and it is well known that the 24-year old has an £29.4million release clause in his contract – but that doesn’t come into effect until 2015. It is believed that Borussia Dortmund could be tempted in selling Reus, if the player doesn’t agree a new contract.
Marco Reus recently won Borussia Dortmund’s Player of the Year award, after coming back from injury to score ten and assist seven of Dortmund’s last 24 goals.
At the ceremony, Reus said:
‘It’s like that in this business. Every player only has one career and wants to get the best out of it.
‘You have to decide what’s best for you. We’ll see about that.’
‘Every footballer has his goals and is dreaming of winning titles.’ Reus added. ‘At the end of your career, you want to be able to say that you’ve won many titles.’
These quotes are certainly interesting, as the player himself still hasn’t committed his future to the side he supported as a child. Perhaps an increase in wages, and the chance to work with Louis van Gaal may be too big to turn down for the German international.
He may also be feeling slightly jaded about the fact that his club seem to sell their best players to Bayern Munich year-in year-out, making it hard for Dortmund to compete for silverware in Germany.
Journalists from England and Germany are picking up this story on a more frequent basis now, and Kevin Palmer, from the Sunday World tweeted this earlier:
Marco Reus links with United appear to be growing. Our reports in late January that this move would happen may prove to be accurate #MUFC

I’d be over the moon if this move happened. It’d prove that we’re still capable of attracting the big names in the transfer market despite the lack of Champions League football at Old Trafford.
