Barcelona are confident that they can acquire Manchester United target Marco Reus for €35million this summer, as they plan on having Jurgen Klopp as their manager for next season.

According to information in Spanish publication Sport, relayed by French newspaper Le 10 Sport, the Catalan club are confident of having their current transfer ban overturned, and have started the process of identifying their desired transfer targets regardless of the constraints currently in place. The same report claims that they are picking up their efforts to sign Reus, as they want to ensure that they bring in a top quality midfielder during the summer market.

Of course their chances of bringing in the in-form German international would be massively boosted if they were to secure the services of the player’s current coach, which could well become a possibility if they part ways with Gerardo Martino at the end of the campaign. Sport states that a €35million move could be engineered by Klopp if he were to take charge at the Nou Camp, which could deal a double blow to English giants United.

The reigning Premier League champions have long been linked with Reus, and the speculation has heightened ahead of what should be an unprecedented summer of change at Old Trafford. They’ve also been tipped to move for Klopp if David Moyes is relieved of his duties in the next few months, and will not want to miss out on both men.
