Man United have eyes on Borussia Dortmund winger, Marco Reus.

Erik ten Hag has this Manchester United side playing some lovely football. That much is obvious. Though we’re still early on in this process. Slowly but surely, this squad will be moulded into one that perfectly fits the Dutchman’s style.

He’s only had one summer transfer window thus far, with another huge one coming up in 2023. The stories are already building ahead of that period, with United being linked with names aplenty.

The latest claim comes from the Daily Mail, who reckon United have eyes on Borussia Dortmund’s fan favourite, Marco Reus.

Reus’ agents were spotted at Old Trafford yesterday, with the Daily Mail claiming that United are chasing the signature of the classy 33-year-old, along with Cristiano Ronaldo’s new club, Al-Nassr.

The German international is out of contract this summer, with his future currently up in the air. A true one-club man, Reus could well leave the Westfalonstadion in six months’ time.

Now 33, the veteran strikes me as someone who’d be an excellent fit for this new regime. He’d work hard, bring some quality to the table and have that positive influence on the dressing room as a whole.

Again, this is another step towards getting Ten Hag a squad he’s 100% happy with. Albeit only a short-term solution, Reus would be a smart piece of business.

There is one elephant in the room; his injury record.

Reus has had treatment table woes throughout his whole career. That alone makes him someone who isn’t going to be dependable for the course of a full season. Even so, I still believe it’s worth the risk, largely due to his versatility and quality.
