Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus has declared that he views persistent speculation over a move to Manchester United and Barcelona as an "achievement", suggesting that his current form merits a mention alongside top European clubs.

Reus is thought to be a long-term target for both United and Barca, a pair of teams perennially linked with the continent's most talented players, although the Red Devils' interest would appear to have more substance given their indifferent start to the campaign.

Dortmund have the wide forward under contract until 2017 but that has not stopped exit rumours, something the German international is taking in his stride and viewing as a compliment rather than agonising over.

He told Bild: "To be honest, I read very little, I do not think about it.

"But I do notice there are times that there is interest here and there, which is quite an achievement."

The 24-year-old has been in fine form this season despite Dortmund's struggle to keep pace with arch rivals Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga, scoring eight times in 17 appearances while also contributing five assists.

Jurgen Klopp's side have struggled to keep their top stars happy since re-emerging as a top side though, with Robert Lewandowski expected to follow Mario Gotze out of the club at the end of the campaign.
