Manchester United’s hopes of signing Marco Reus dealt big blow

Manchester United’s hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus have taken a huge blow, as the player insists he’ll be playing his football at the Westfalenstadion next season. Despite that, Reus still hasn’t signed a new deal with his boyhood club.

Its common knowledge that the 24-year old has a clause in his contract that activates next summer, and that clause means that any club can buy Reus for £29million. Dortmund are trying to get the player to commit to a new deal with higher wages, and get rid of the aforementioned clause. However no deal between club and player has been agreed yet.

Sky Sports’ Pete O’Rourke broke the news earlier on today:

Personally, I feel his future will still be up in the air until a new deal is agreed between Dortmund and Reus. Anything can happen in football, and if a club comes in offering Reus a big enough wage package, then a move could clearly be on the cards.

“It’s safe to say I will be playing for Borussia Dortmund also in the 2014-15 season,” he said. “Basically I do not need to stress all the time that I am feeling great being with the club. As far as leaving [Borussia Dortmund] that is no issue for me, and I am not affected by the transfer release clause.”

If Reus does stay in Germany, United should go in for French starlet Antoine Greizmann, who has had an excellent season at Real Sociedad.
