Arsenal and Manchester United will rival each other for the signature of Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, according to reports. Both the clubs are currently monitoring his situation and may make a move for him next summer.
Both Mourinho and Wenger will try to land Reus
Marco Reus is out injured since the end of last season as he suffered a cruciate ligament injury in the German Cup final. He hasn’t yet made an appearance this season and will be available in as early as early 2018, not before that. But it seems that his injury stricken halts hasn’t really faded his interest in and out of the German league. And Arsenal has been a long time linked club with Reus but reports also emerge that Manchester United are keeping close tabs regarding the German’s situation.
He expressed his desire to leave the club recently but the Borussia director Michael Zorc, though told Kicker, “We see Marco with us in the long run.”
He believes that Reus will commit his long term future with the Yellow and Blacks soon and stay for a long time.
Sport Bild and Sun has claimed that both the Premier League giants want him and the North London club have watched him in the latter stages of last season.
Jose Mourinho will welcome the winger as United need a player in that position, they tried for Ivan Perisic last season but failed to lure the player as the Croatian joined Serie A side Inter Milan. Arsenal on the other hand potentially will be without Sanchez next season and will need to fill the void Sanchez will make.
Reus’ contract expires in 2019
The Dortmund star recently admitted he would give away all the money to be healthy again and to be able to do his job.
It will be a big loss for Dortmund but given the injury history and his age along with the attacking resources they have, Borussia Dortmund may well cash in Reus if suitable offer arrives next summer.
