Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on Marco Reus’ situation at Borussia Dortmund and are open to a potential move, according to Sky Germany.
In a candid interview with GQ magazine, German star Marco Reus said that he would reconsider his future at Dortmund, and is open to change. His contract at the German club ends in 2019.
“There are four or five international clubs who interest me,” he was quoted as saying.
“On May 31 next year, I will turn 30. That would be my last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different.
“I have to be honest and fair and say I don’t know where I’ll end up. At the moment, I’m very happy in Dortmund and not thinking about what happens after 2019. But, of course, the time will come and then I will sit down and calmly make a decision.”
The winger is currently out with a cruciate injury and is unlikely to feature again this year. Reus has had a career riddled with injuries. In the last 3 years alone, he has suffered from a remarkable 23 different injuries, including the ones which made him miss Germany’s victorious 2014 World Cup campaign as well as their Euro 2016 outing.
Arsenal and Man Utd are two of the clubs monitoring him, if Sky Germany are to be believed. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is reportedly a long-term admirer of the ace. Reus would represent a replacement for Alexis Sanchez, who is expected to leave the Gunners for a free this summer, with his contract expiring.
Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho, too, was looking for reinforcements in the wing area this summer. A pursuit of Ivan Perisic had led to no fruition. The Portuguese manager has recently made his disappointment about not landing another winger public, and the deep-pocketed Red Devils could now turn their focus to Reus next summer.
However, Dortmund are still confident of holding on to Reus. Their sporting director, Michael Zorc was quoted by German news outlet Kicker, saying, “We see Marco with us in the long run.”
