Reus has made only seven appearances this season

Ex-Bayern goal-keeper, Oliver Kahn has rubbished Marco Reus’ €25 million release clause and has said that Borussia Dortmund will fail to hold onto their star player in the summer.

Reus had made sure that his contract has this stipulation inculcated, which runs till June 2017. Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Manchester City are all interested in the player as Reus had made it clear that he will not extend his contract with Dortmund.

Dortmund officials have admitted that they would be powerless to stop Reus, if he wishes to leave the club. Oliver Kahn expects and wants the German international to do exactly that.

He told Sports Bild, "It will be very difficult for Dortmund to hold on to Reus, especially if we take into account that they are unlikely to qualify for European football.”  

He added, "Dortmund will only be able to hold on to Reus if they push their own financial limits. If not, Reus will definitely walk out. The big clubs in Europe laugh about a €25m transfer fee these days…"

Reus has struggled with injuries this season managing only seven appearances. Dortmund currently lie in 17th position and are consolidated in the relegation zone. It’s quite evident that Klopp is missing his main player in the squad.
