Borussia Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp has insisted that he will have to make a mistake for Marco Reus to depart the club.
As reported by the Express, the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea will only be handed an opportunity to land the playmaker if Klopp fails with him over the course of the season.
Champions League in doubt
In recent time, it has been suggested that Reus will move on if his club fail to secure qualification for next year's Champions League competition, however Klopp has insisted that won't be the case.
After a disastrous opening half to the campaign, Dortmund are currently sitting joint bottom of the Bundesliga - 12 points behind Borussia Mönchengladbach, who currently occupy the final Champions League spot.
And, with Dortmund seemingly desperate to climb the Bundesliga table over the coming weeks and months, the club's manager has hinted that Reus could yet stay with his side beyond the end of this campaign.

Speaking to Bild, the Dortmund boss said: "I don't think any of our players will leave if we don't qualify for the Champions League next season.
"If Reus does ask to leave then I will have made a mistake with him."
There's no doubt about it, the Reus transfer saga looks set to continue over the coming months, with the likes of Manchester United and Co. seemingly determined to bring him to the Premier League.
Louis van Gaal, despite already having an array of attacking talent at his disposal, seems ready to add to his options at the club once again over the course of this year, with Reus one name continuously linked with a move to the Theatre of Dreams.
As well as Manchester United, the trio of Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea appear to be monitoring the player's services, while it has recently been reported that Manchester City are leading the race for the German's signature.
Premier League fans will no doubt be desperate to see Reus arrive in the Premier League sooner rather than later, with the player recognised as one of the leading forward talents in world football.
