Manchester United, Arsenal and Barcelona could miss out on Borussia Dortmund sensation Marco Reus, with his current club preparing to offer him a new deal.
According to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, citing German publication Bild as their source, Dortmund are worried that Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain are ready to meet Reus' current release clause of €35million in January and so are putting together a new deal in an attempt to convince him to stay.
Interest in the 24-year-old has sky-rocketed over the last year or so and, whilst his brilliance was somewhat overshadow by Mario Gotze during last season's emphatic run to the Champions League final, he has become Dortmund's star man this campaign.
It's thought that Arsenal, United, Barca and now of course PSG are all ready to happily pay out the €35million required for his services, and Dortmund chiefs are worried that they may do so in January.
In response to his potential exit, Reus will reportedly be offered a new contract that will see him take home €6million-a-year as opposed to the €4.5million he earns now.
Any new contract would of course cancel out the release clause currently hovering over his head, and thus tie him to the German club for the foreseeable future.
It remains to be seen though whether or not Reus will reject Dortmund in favour of another European giant, as PSG in particular could certainly offer him far more than he stands to earn at his current club.
