Chelsea’s manager Jose Mourinho has rubbished all rumors with the London based club linked to Borussia Dortmund’s player, Marco Reus. Mourinho arrived in Germany ahead of their Champions League clash against Schalke and said that Chelsea have no need of Marco Reus.
“‘We don’t want Marco Reus. The market is closed and the player belongs to Borussia. We have top players in this position.’ said Jose
‘No secrets, I have a fantastic relationship with the Dortmund coach and sporting director.’ he added.
Meanwhile, German International Marco Reus is unwilling to sign a contract extension with the German giants and the 25 year old is expected to leave Dortmund in Summer as his release £20million release clause could be triggered by many interested parties which include Manchester City and Real Madrid.
The 25 year old German International is known for his pace, skill, trickery and finesse and although he operates as an attacking midfielder, Reus can also ply his trade on either side of the wing.
After impressing with Borussia M’gladbach, Reus moved to another Borussia, Borussia Dortmund. Since than Reus has been a livewire for the team and has constructed an impeccable attacking pedigree, which is attached to his name.
Man City are another suitors, who could gun for Reus’s signature as their ailing team could benefit with the inclusion of a live wire. Man City have been disappointing in their performances so far, and the Citizens although defeated Swansea City 2-1, face a daunting trip to keep their hopes alive in the Champions League, to Germany.
However Man City sit third in the Premier League, their contingent has been regularly plagued by defensive lapses and lack of attacking options. With the inclusion of Reus, City would look to re-energise themselves while relying on Reus’s cutting edge.
Arsenal are the most unlikely of suitors, as the clubs has regularly failed to sign targets they have acquired – which are also shared by corresponding Premier League clubs.
With Marco Reus’s release clause being activated next summer, Borussia Dortmund could try and sell the German International for hefty price tag.
With Chelsea out of the race and Mourinho openly stating that Reus is not wanted at the Stamford Bridge, Manchester City could try and lure the German International as early as January. City would be looking to make changes if they fail in their Champions League encounter against Bayern Munich, and a busy transfer period could take place in January.
