Borussia Dortmund have confirmed that their star player Marco Reus has a release clause in his contract.
Reus joined Dortmund last season from Borussia Monchengladbach after a release clause was activated. He had a very impressive season under Jurgen Klopp and has continued his form so far this term.
Many are thought to be interested in the sought-after Reus, including the two Manchester clubs, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal. All are considering big money moves for the player.
It is claimed that Premier League champions United are considering a January move for the German international after they thoroughly scouted the player over prev
There has also been the suggestion that United could offer former Dortmund playmaker Shinji Kagawa, who's future is constantly in doubt, as part of a deal to bring Reus to Old Trafford.
Dortmund executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has stated that there is a clause in Reus' contract, with reports believing the figure is in the region of €35 million (£29.4m).
"Marco Reus possesses a release clause option in his current contract at our club," Watzke told SPORT1media. "He could leave our club due to that.
"He is, however, the only player in our first-team squad that has such a contract clause."
Reus has a contract that runs until 2017, yet constant speculation claims that Dortmund want to give the 24-year-old a pay rise as they look to remove the release clause in order to keep hold of their prize asset.
