Manchester United and Arsenal face Barcelona battle for Reus

Next Story

Manchester United and Arsenal face intense competition for the signing of Marco Reus, with reports suggesting that Barcelona are interested in acquiring the German star.

24-year-old Reus joined current club Borussia Dortmund in January 2012 from domestic rivals Borussia Monchengladbach and has since played a starring role for Jurgen Klopp's widely-admired outfit at Signal Iduna Park.

The versatile attacker has proved his credentials with a number of superb attacking displays in the Bundesliga and such consistent form has seen him attract attention from some of Europe's most reputable clubs.

Premier League trio United, Arsenal and Manuel Pellegrini's Manchester City have all been linked with potential switches for the Germany international Reus, whose current deal with Die Schwarzgelben reportedly contains a release clause of £34 million.

Those aforementioned outfits could face a struggle to entice Reus to the English top-flight, however, with Spanish newspaper El Mundo Deportivo suggesting that he is now a target for Gerardo Martino's Catalan giants.

With the La Liga champions already boasting a truly formidable attacking lineup featuring the likes of Argentine sensation Lionel Messi and fellow South American Neymar, the signing of Reus would further serve to underline Barcelona's status as arguably the greatest team in the world.
