Manchester United's hopes of signing Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Marco Reus have suffered a major blow as the Bundesliga outfit have again confirmed they are planning to keep hold of the German international.

Reus was said to be among the names on incoming Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal's summer transfer wish-list - along with his fellow international teammates Mats Hummels and Toni Kroos.

However Van Gaal may have no option to change tact as Dortmund have ruled out the possibility of losing Reus this summer.

Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke, speaking to reporters, said on Reus: "He is a world-class player and other clubs' interest in him is obvious.

"We are going to prove to Marco that this is the best club for him and want to keep him with us for a long time to come."

A number of top European clubs are said to be keeping close tabs on Reus after what has been a superb season for the midfielder.

Reus netted 16 goals in 30 Bundesliga games for Jurgen Klopp's side which has subsequently put him on Manchester United's radar.

Van Gaal may now decide to step up his apparent interest in Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben. The former Chelsea man is due to link up with the rest of the Netherlands squad later this month ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
