Hannover star Jan Schlaudraff has given encouragement to Marco Reus to move from Borussia Monchengladbach to a bigger club, but in a blow to Manchester United, the attacker believes that Reus should go to Bayern Munich.
Schlaudraff made the move from Monchengladbach to Alemannia Aachen in 2005, and moved on to Bayern in 2007.
While Manchester United have been chasing Reus, Schlaudraff believes that a move to the German giants is the best step for the 22-year-old.
"Going to Bayern is a big thing. They have the best team, the best international prospects, but one must consider if one will get playing time,” he said.
“Marco is a great player. I would make the move again.
"Gladbach are developing well, but they will never reach the level of Bayern. And, the past has shown that there were also players who did not make the move and then things went wrong with their clubs anyway."
United had reportedly seen Reus as a genuine target over the summer transfer period, but a bid never eventuated for the Germany international.
The starlet has a €18 million exit clause in his contract, Goal.com claims, and while United had believed the price was affordable, if Reus wants to stay in Germany the Engilsh giants may just miss out.
