Borussia Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc isn't concerned with reports linking Marco Reus to Manchester United, reports talkSPORT. 

Reus has been in fine form for the German outfit over the past couple of years and this has led to a number of reports linking the 24-year-old with a move to the Theatre of Dreams. 

The German international has a £29.4 million release clause at Dortmund, however the club's president isn't worried about the links. 

Speaking to Bild, Zorc said: "We have learned to deal with and live with them (the rumours). Around 90 per cent of what I have read in recent months is nonsense. If we are playing football as we have been then it is perfectly normal that we are shrouded in rumours about our team.

"It doesn't disturb us any longer. It is even an award for us."

Manchester United are expected to spend in this January transfer window, but it now remains to be seen as to whether Red Devils boss David Moyes will step up in his pursuit of Reus. 

United have had a difficult season under Moyes, currently sitting in seventh place in the Premier League table and could make signings in this window. 

Meanwhile Dortmund have also been struggling domestically as they sit 12 points behind league leaders Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga.

Despite troubles in their own leagues, both Manchester United and Dortmund secured their place in the Round of 16 in the Champions League. The Red Devils will go head-to-head with Olympiacos, whilst Dortmund will battle Zenit as Europe's elite competition returns next month.
