Marco Reus agent unsurprised by Borussia Dortmund exit rumours

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United and Liverpool have been offered renewed hope in their alleged pursuit of Marco Reus after the Borussia Dortmund forward's agent talked up the possibility of a summer transfer.

The Metro reports how the Germany international has rejected the offer of a new contract at Signal Iduna Park, fuelling speculation he could leave the Bundesliga giants before the close of the current window.

Dirk Hebel - who represents the 25-year-old - has been made well aware of widespread interest in his client, and insists he is unsurprised by the growing list of suitors seemingly courting the player's signature.

"Marco would make any big European team stronger," he was quoted as saying in German newspaper Bild.

"That's why it's completely normal that a number of these major European teams are interested in signing him."

Liverpool interest

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has been credited with an interest in bringing Reus to Anfield this summer as he continues his search for attacking reinforcements following the recent departure of Luis Suarez to Barcelona.

The Uruguayan striker swapped Merseyside for Camp Nou in a mouth-watering £75 million deal, leaving Liverpool with a pocketful of cash to reinvest in the playing squad ahead of their return to the Champions League this season.

Manchester United interest

Manchester United have also been mooted as admirers of the player by the Daily Express, with Louis van Gaal also on the lookout for new players to bring to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils manager is already blessed with an array of attacking talent, but that hasn't prevented rumours of a possible bid this summer.

Despite rejecting the new deal on the table, Reus remains under contract with Borussia Dortmund until 2017, and is set to see his release clause rise to £27 million next year.

World Cup heartache

The former Borussia Mönchengladbach star is currently recovering from the injury that ruled him out of the World Cup in Brazil, and Hebel explained that his current focus is on getting back to full fitness.

"His main priority for now is to get back to top fitness and return to the pitch," he added. "Everything else is not important at this stage."

Reus scored an impressive 23 goals in 43 appearances for Dortmund last season and Jurgen Klopp will be hoping to keep hold of one of his most important players, particularly after losing leading striker Robert Lewandowski to rivals Bayern Munich earlier this summer.
