Barcelona make move to sign Marco Reus

Published 4 Comments

Barcelona officials are reported to have made contact with representatives of Marco Reus with regards a proposed summer deal for the coveted Borussia Dortmund forward. Manchester United have also been linked with Reus, who scored 23 goals for Dortmund in the recently concluded club campaign.

Reus has recently stated that he intends to remain a Borussia Dortmund player beyond the transfer window, although it may be that this is taken out of his hands if a proposed suitor is capable of meeting his €35 million release clause. And Mundo Deportivo report that Barcelona have a genuine interest in signing Reus.

It is claimed that Barcelona first initiated contact with Back Struth, the agent of Reus, when top negotiator Albert Valentin travelled to Germany in order to finalise a deal for the signing of Marc-Andre ter Stegen from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The Spanish newspaper also suggest that an agreement is already in place between Reus and Barcelona, although the Catalan club have yet to received any positive feedback from Dortmund CEO Michael Zorc regarding a potential transfer.

Were Dortmund willing to entertain offers for Reus, then it was likely Barcelona would find opposition for the 24-year-old’s signature from Manchester United. The Germany international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for some time, and Manchester United would certainly find Reus’ release clause within reach.
