The agent of Marco Reus has denied there is an agreement with Bayern Munich for the Manchester United and Arsenal target.

Reports in Germany claim the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder has negotiated a move to the Allianz Arena but, according to Dirk Hebel, that is not the case.

"There are currently no talks between both parties and there is certainly no agreement," Hebel told SID. "We haven't planned any negotiations either in the near future.

"The reports that a deal has been agreed came as a huge surprise for us. This information is completely false."

Along with Bayern, Arsenal and United have been credited with interest in Reus as Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson scour the market for midfield reinforcements.

The Guardian initially reported that both Arsenal and United had registered their interest in the Germany international in the spring, but neither club is thought to have made a formal offer.

Meanwhile, Gladbach manager Lucien Favre claimed Wenger had been in contact directly with him regarding the 22-year-old after the Gunners boss was tipped off by former Arsenal charge Jens Lehmann.
