Latest Reus update could excite Manchester United fans

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus refused to confirm whether he has been offered a new contract. Does this open the door for a move to Old Trafford?

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus says he is becoming bored of questions about his future and refused to confirm whether he has been offered a new contract, according to Bild.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, with Manchester United his expected destination.

It’s well-known that Marco Reus is a diehard Borussia Dortmund fan and whilst this has been the case since childhood, recent rumours will surely excite United fans.

With the Manchester outfit armed with a £200 million war chest this summer, Reus could be one of many new arrivals at Old Trafford.

The talented forward was reportedly offered a new contract with Dortmund which would see his €35 million buyout clause, which becomes active in 2015, eliminated in return for a significant payrise.

However, when questioned about his current agreement, the Germany international sought to remain tight-lipped but stressed that he has no problems with life at the Westfalenstadion.

"I'm not saying anything about my contract," he told Bild.

"But I do have the time to emphasise how good I feel at Dortmund."

Dortmund have been forced to lose their star players in the past, with Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski agreeing deals with league rivals Bayern Munich. The transfer of Shinji Kagawa will also remain fresh in the club’s memory.

The Japan international has failed to show his true ability in a Manchester United shirt, although we have witnessed glimmers of his capabilities. Should he make the move to Old Trafford, Reus will be keen to make an immediate impression in order to avoid the ex-Dortmund man's current situation.

Not too long ago, former teammate Mario Gotze expressed his compatriots desire to play for the Red Devils. “When I was at Borussia Marco (Reus) wanted a move to Man United, he hasn’t changed,” he is reported as saying.

To make this deal a reality, United are reportedly willing to offer the German a lucrative £200,000-a-week contract – a sum that could prove difficult to turn down.
