Adnan Januzaj has posted a photo of himself and reported Manchester United target Marcos Reus travelling to Greece ahead of Borussia Dortmund’s Europa League match against PAOK on Thursday night.
And the photo has excited Manchester United fans on Twitter judging by the comments in the replies section - scroll down this page to see some of the best responses.
“On the way to 🇬🇷 ! With my bro @woodyinho,” Januzaj posted. It seems the two attackers have struck up a close bond off the pitch since the Belgium international arrived at Signal Iduna Park on loan from United earlier this month.

ESPN reported, shortly after the transfer window shut on September 1, that Manchester United attempted to make a move for Reus while negotiating the loan deal for Januzaj to move in the opposite direction.
Club sources revealed that United were prepared to pay up to £50 million for the Germany international, but that figure was still £10 million short of Dortmund’s valuation.

Reus would be a stunning signing
Reus is one of the most sought-after attacking players in world football, having scored 59 goals in 128 appearances for BVB since joining the Bundesliga club from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012.
However, the 26-year-old ended speculation over his future back in February by signing a new four-year deal with the club, presumably under the impression that Jurgen Klopp would be staying.
Reus’s future was plunged into uncertainty after Klopp left Signal Iduna Park in the summer, although he and his teammates are performing well under the revered German coach’s successor, Thomas Tuchel.
There’s no doubt that Reus would be a fantastic signing for Manchester United - and, who knows, perhaps Louis van Gaal will ask Januzaj to have a quiet word with the flying winger over the next few months.
