Marco Reus wants to join Barcelona

Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has his heart set on a dream move to Barcelona, and is less enthused by the idea of joining any other interested club, including the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City.

Reus, who is also attracting attention from Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, would prefer a move to the Camp Nou, where his good friend Marc-Andre ter Stegen now plies his trade following his summer move from Borussia Monchengladbach.

This is according to a report by German newspaper Bild - and brought to our attention by Catalan paper Mundo Deportivo - which claims that sentimental rather than economic reasons will decide Reus’s future.

Reus available for €25m

Reus will be available to sign for the relatively modest fee of €25 million next summer - Mundo Deportivo state that his current market value is double that price - because of a clause in his Borussia Dortmund contract.

Dortmund boss Jurgen Klopp is desperate to keep his prized asset at Signal Iduna Park, though, while Puma could potentially put together a €10 million-a-year contract offer to help BVB retain the Germany international’s services.

Barcelona's transfer ban

Much could depend on whether FIFA agree to overturn Barcelona’s transfer ban. The Catalan giants are currently prohibited from signing any new players until January 2016 - which means, at this moment in time, there’s no way Reus will be allowed to join the club of his dreams in 2015.

Klopp, despite his determination to keep Reus at Dortmund, will surely do everything in his power to prevent losing another key player to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.

In recent years, Dortmund have lost Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski to Pep Guardiola’s side - and the gulf in class between the two sides has become apparent this season.

Gap widening

Bayern are unbeaten in their opening 10 Bundesliga matches, and picked up their seventh victory of the season with a last-gasp 2-1 win over Dortmund last weekend.

That defeat left Klopp’s side down in 17th position, level on points with bottom-side Werder Bremen, having picked up seven points from a possible 30.

Failure to improve their league form could encourage Reus to move on at the end of the season, but he will only be able to complete a move to Barcelona if FIFA act in the Spanish club’s favour.
