Bayern Munich are set to discuss the transfer of Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus in the next few weeks, as reported by the Daily Star.
This comes straight from the mouth of Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who has said that his side are closely monitoring Reus’ availability, given that his contract situation is considered to be to the benefit of other teams targeting him.
A move from Bayern would come of something as a blow to the series of Premier League sides tracking Reus, given the historical precedent.
The likes of Robert Lewandowksi and Mario Gotze have all been heavily tracked by Premier League sides before beating the well trodden path between Dortmund and the Allianz Arena side.
This could put Liverpool and Man Utd on tenterhooks about the possibility of signing Reus, with Bayern clearly interested and Reus likely to be keen on making a move to the German giants.
Reus reportedly has a contract clause that would allow another club to sign him next summer for only £19.8 million, well below his true value.
Rummenigge was clear about Bayern’s interest, saying: “To be honest, we’ll discuss the matter internally and calmly.
“Then we will come to a decision.
“At the end of the day, the player has to decide too. His release clause is well known. There’s nothing more to say.”
