Manchester United could use Adnan Januzaj to land Marco Reus

Published 8 Comments

Manchester United could use Adnan Januzaj as bait to land Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus next summer according to the Sunday People.

The Belgian youngster is currently on loan with the German club, however there is no option to make the move permanent as it stands.

Reus meanwhile has been chased by a host of leading clubs across Europe including most of the Premier League elite for some time. Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United as well as Real Madrid reportedly tried to land the 26-year-old last summer but he opted to remain in Germany.

Now the People report that the race for Reus is set to re-start, and Manchester United feel they have a bargaining chip to help them get the deal done - despite the fact he signed a new four-year contract in February.

Januzaj was surprisingly allowed to leave Old Trafford despite starting two of the Red Devils' four Premier League games this season.

Van Gaal is said to be a fan of Reus and is keen to take him to the club, even if it means he has to sacrifice Januzaj.


That may be difficult however because of Dortmund's lightning quick start to the season under new boss Thomas Tuchel. The club struggled to stave off relegation last term which prompted manager Jurgen Klopp to quit.

Dortmund have won all three of their games so far, scoring eleven goals and conceding one to leave them top of the Bundesliga table ahead of Bayern Munich. Reus himself has been in spectacular form and has managed five goals in six games in all competitions this season, although he faces a spell on the sidelines after breaking his toe against Hertha Berlin.

How much do you think Marco Reus is worth? £40m? £50m?
