Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus is set to turn down a move to Manchester United, according to the Daily Mail.
The 24-year-old was linked with a January move to the reigning Premier League champions earlier this week, but it's believed that Reus sees his future at Signal Iduna Park and will sign a contract extension with last season's Champions League finalists.
The Germany international has a £29.4m release clause in his contract and Dortmund are acutely aware that this could lead to his departure unless they act swiftly.
But the Bundesliga outfit are increasingly confident that Reus, who scored 19 goals for in his debut season for the club after leaving Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012, will sign the improved deal to stay with Jurgen Klopp's side.
The Daily Mail quote a "well-placed source" at Borussia Dortmund as saying: "He sees his future here for a few more seasons yet, and the expectation is that he will sign a new contract."
Dortmund have already rejected an approach from Manchester City for Reus, and are now expected to reject United's offer of a swap deal involving Shinji Kagawa.
Further transfer marker frustration for United boss David Moyes, then, who is also unlikely to sign Barcelona playmaker Andres Iniesta.
