Arsenal and Manchester United have been dealt a huge blow in their chase for Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, after Real Madrid reportedly declared their interest in signing the German international, as reported by the Daily Star.
While Dortmund managed their first win for an extended period of time at the weekend, Reus’ future at the club is still unsure.
Several reports have linked him with a handful of the top European sides over the last few months, including Premier League giants Arsenal and Man Utd.
Reus has the pedigree for a huge move in the near future, having scored 23 goals in 43 games for Dortmund last season.
Sources in Germany, however, suggest that while the Premier League duo are said to be prepping bids of around £20 million, Real have now entered the race for the player.
Carlo Ancelotti is said to be particularly keen on the German international, and will hope to make a move for him in January.
This could make it more difficult for the English sides to sign him.
