Marco Reus has stepped up to fill the shoes of Mario Gotze at Borussia Dortmund this season, impressing in an attacking-midfield role.
Manchester United are crying out for a young, creative midfielder and David Moyes desperately needs a marquee signing to prove he can cut it at Old Trafford.
Not only would Reus prove to be an excellent acquisition, it would take the pressure of Moyes and Ed Woodward, who suffered several set-backs in a poorly executed summer transfer window.
United have been linked with a £25m bid. Is that enough to convince Dortmund to sell?
Maybe chuck in Shinji Kagawa for good measure.
