Manchester United transfer target Marco Reus is doing everything he can to stay fit while he recovers from an anle problem.

Borussia Dortmund and Germany midfielder Marco Reus is already back in the gym following an ankle injury, which ruled him out of the World Cup in Brazil.

The £40 million Manchester United transfer target was naturally distraught when he suffered the injury in a 6-1 win against Armenia, but he’s wasted no time getting ready for his eventual return.

Reus has hit the gym to do as much work as possible to reduce the long term impact of his ankle problem and has been pictured doing some weight training on his stronger right leg.

Fortunately for Germany, they’ve got off to a decent start at the World Cup in his absence, with a solid win against Portugal backed up with a 2-2 draw against Ghana.

Manchester United will still be harbouring dreams of signing the midfielder in the future as he looks set to remain a BVB player next season. The sense would also be lost for United in signing an injured player.

It’s good to see him on the road to recovery, but it’s going to be a long journey.
