According to Daily Star, Marco Reus wants to be transferred to Manchester United! The source for this claim is Reus’ ex-teammate Mario Gotze.
Goetze said: “When I was at Borussia, Marco wanted a move to Manchester United. This hasn’t changed.”
It is interesting to see this claim from a source we can trust, right at the time when alleged 200-million-pounds of “pocket money”, which will be at Moyes’ disposal at the summer, are being discussed.
On his wish list is Marco Reus, and now we have reasons to believe that his name wasn’t randomly scribbled on it.
So, Mario Gotze told the press that Reus wants a transfer to Manchester United, and since it is claimed that United wants him too, it is only up to Borussia to decide whether or not they will sell this great player.
After three brilliant seasons, in which they won 2 championship titles and played in the Champions League final, the stellar run of “the millionaires” from Dortmund has slowly come to an end. They were swiftly outpowered by Bayern in this season, and knocked out at the Champions League quarterfinals by the hands of Real Madrid.
Their biggest star, the striker Robert Lewandowski, betrayed the club, and will transfer on free in the summer to arch rivals Bayern Munich. Some other players don’t want to resign, so Klopp is likely to see his empire collapsing.
Therefore, Marco Reus could find an exit from the sinking ship too, fulfill his wish and play for Manchester United.
Some sources claim that Reus has a minimum fee release clause inserted in his contract in the range of about 35 million pounds.
Paying that amount of money shouldn’t be a problem for United.
Reus can play in all attacking midfielder positions, but he is at his best as left winger. Considering Januzaj’s youth, and that Nani is probably leaving the club, Moyes wants to have dominant players on the wing, since that was always United’s style.
Reus could cooperate well with Juan Mata who will play primarily as right wing. The fruition of this deal could be the trigger which will once again launch Manchester United to the very top of English football, after the disappointing season.
We give this transfer 50% probability to happen.
