£40m Man United target confirms comments about Bayern Munich are fake

Marco Reus has denied making comments that he wouldn't join Bayern Munich on a big contract.

Marco Reus has said comments he supposedly move in relation to a potential move to Bayern Munich are fake.

The £40 million rated Borussia Dortmund star is supposed to have said that he couldn’t be tempted into a move to the German and European champions because of the financial benefits.

“I wish luck to Lewa and Gotze, but Bayern will never have me. Money is not everything,” said Reus according to a Daily Mirror report.

The comments seemingly left the door open to a possible future move to Manchester United but Reus has confirmed through German newspaper Bild that the comments were fake and didn’t come from him.

“The statements are a fake. This is something I have never said and would never say,” he said as per the Bild report.

Despite this story and the various rumours linking Reus with various clubs across Europe, not a great deal has changed.

He’s always maintained his loyalty when talking about Borussia Dortmund and with Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski (this summer) having left the club for Bayern Munich, he’ll be a very important part of the Dortmund side moving forward.

The rumour mill does have a tendency to go a bit mad at this time of year, but Reus deserves credit for some initiative and nipping these comments in the bud before they blossomed into something more troublesome.
