Manchester United have long been termed as the potential destination of BVB attacker Marco Reus but it seems that the German player has set his heart on a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid or Barcelona.
French website Le10Sport.com has reported today that courted by the biggest clubs in the world, such as PSG and Manchester United, Marco Reus is close to Barcelona. But guess what: the German would not be insensitive to a possible approach of Real Madrid.
Reus has been in impressive form for Dortmund this season, scoring 13 goals and managing 10 assists in 25 league appearances – plus five goals in the Champions League. It is hard to replace that kind of quality, and Klopp will be keenly aware of that.
Marco Reus posted another memorable performance during Borussia Dortmund’s 3-0 hammering of Bayern Munich, an individual display that showcased why these European giants in interested in him. Reus has a natural knack of drifting into space before unleashing an incisive run or pass. His dribbling skill is matched by expert vision and a delicate touch that makes him classy in possession and unpredictable to mark.
Manchester United have long been interested in the services of this highly talented player. And although United face a daunting task of trying to wrestle back domestic bragging rights, Moyes may be able to sell the idea of his team’s transition. Old Trafford still holds a real pulling power, even after the recent downfall, and should be able to attract a plethora of exciting stars during the summer overhaul.
Despite a lack of Champions League football, Moyes believes he will be able to land the type of quality United fans have grown to expect, perTelegraph Sport: “Any players we’ve quietly discussed it with are more than happy to join Manchester United,” said Moyes. “They know it’s not a long-term thing.”
But the entry of world’s two biggest clubs for signature of Reus is a bad news for United. Right now, the historic club is failing to fulfill any of the promises fans have come to expect. Should Reus be installed as the new No. 7, an iconic position on a global scale, Moyes may finally find the confidence to thrust his side toward the free-flowing, attractive football that made United’s name popular under Sir Alex Ferguson.
Los Blancos reportedly set their sights on capturing Lewandowski before he decided to join Bayern Munich, and now they could be ready to compete with United for Reus. However, it seems Dortmund will fight to retain their player, even more than they did over Lewandowski, whose future became the subjected of a protracted and at times heated saga before he decided to join Bayern.
Reus has been the star performer of BVB this term and as mentioned earlier, Klopp will do everything possible to retain his services. However, if Barca or Real Madrid comes calling for his services, then it will be difficult for the BVB management to keep Reus away from the glamour of El Clasico rivals. Meanwhile, Manchester United should start looking elsewhere.
