Manchester United scouts have become more and more accustomed to visiting the German town of Dortmund.
The incredible increase in stature experienced by Jurgen Klopp's Borussia has prompted the attention of many a footballing giant in Europe in the past two years.
Bayern Munich have snapped up the developing superstar Mario Gotze from Borussia Dortmund, while Manchester United are have acquired Shinji Kagawa's services.
And in a rare winter time transfer raid, United's boss David Moyes should head to Germany in order to improve his side.
Ilkay Gundogan remains a viable target for the English champions, although he has suffered multiple injuries so far this season and United should bring him and Marco Reus to Old Trafford.
Reus can play as a midfielder, as well as an attacking midfielder and can even be assigned a wide role, which would solve many of David Moyes' midfield headaches.
Borussia Dortmund have slapped a high price-tag on Marco Reus, but Ed Woodward has already announced that the English champions require strengthening with world class talent.
And Marco Reus fits the description perfectly, but it remains to be seen whether Manchester United are strong enough and quick enough to grab him during the winter transfer window.
