Firstly, Mario Gotze’s release clause was met by the Allianz Arena outfit and the playmaker opted to switch to Bavaria, while Robert Lewandowski has agreed to move to Pep Guardiola’s men on a free transfer this summer.
With Marco Reus another real attacking talent at Signal Iduna Park, fears that he could follow suit and move to Dortmund’s rivals are understandable.
However, the left-sided attacker has admitted that he will not follow his team-mates and move to Bayern.
“I wish luck to Lewa and Gotze, but Bayern will never have me. Money is not everything,” he has gone on the record as saying.
Dortmund fans will greet this noise with rapture, but it may also be a piece of great news for Manchester United.
David Moyes’ men have been linked with the Germany international in the past, and although it is unlikely the Old Trafford outfit will be able to sign him in January, Reus’ admission takes a major rival out of the picture.
United fans will hope Reus’ loyalty to not betray Dortmund will work in their favour in the future, and they can tempt the talented playmaker to Manchester.
