Manchester United are willing to make Marco Reus one of the best paid players in the Premier League if he agrees to a summer, reports the Daily Mirror.
The Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder has long been a target for Manchester United manager David Moyes, who is rumoured to have as much as £200m to spend in the summer transfer market.
As Moyes prepares to overhaul his squad, he is drawing up a shortlist of potential signing with Reus believed to be very near the top of it.
Reus has scored an impressive 19 goals from a forward position for Jurgen Klopp's men and Manchester United are ready to make him one of their top earners if he agrees to move to Old Trafford.
Moyes will offer the German international £200,000-a-week and believes it will be enough to convince Reus to move away from Dortmund to Manchester despite the lack of Champions League football.
Reus impressed onlookers again against Bayern Munich, inspiring Dortmund to a 3-0 win over the Bundesliga champions.
Manchester United scouts were present for that game, delivering glaring reports back to Moyes as a result.
German team mate Mario Gotze has already given Moyes a boost in his pursuit of Reus, claiming he wants to move to Manchester United.
"When I was at Borussia, Marco wanted a move to Manchester United," Gotze was quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror. "This hasn't changed."
