Manchester United's chances of signing midfielder Marco Reus have been boosted by Borussia Dortmund's struggles this season, according to the Daily Mail.
The 24-year-old German ace has been stupendous for Borussia Dortmund so far, but recent disappointing performances saw Jurgen Klopp's side virtually surrender the Bundesliga title race to Bayern Munich.
After enduring a 1-0 loss to Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund struggled to beat Hoffenheim this past weekend, but notched up a single point somehow. But,there has been no news regarding resentment from the fans or the club.
Moreover, Reus was caught displaying his discontent when he barged into the fourth official, just some yards away from where Klopp was standing.
Due to these below par performances, Dortmund have dropped out of the title race and are no longer considered to be a threat to last season's treble winners Bayern Munich, who hammered Klopp's side 3-0.
Dortmund have become well known for not keeping their star-players contented and that's the reason why they have failed to hold on to them.
Bayern Munich's signing of Mario Gotze showed exactly what is mentioned in the previous line and the same can happen with the Germany and Dortmund winger.
Reus has a near £30million release clause in his contract, which Dortmund intend trying to buy out in exchange for a new improved deal that would tie him to the club on vastly-improved terms for the foreseeable future.
The possibility of Reus leaving Dortmund in January is little but with the news streaming in on Reus' "discontent", Manchester United will surely be encouraged to make an offer for the winger.
