Marco Reus denies he will join Manchester United
Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus has distanced himself from reports linking him with a move to Manchester United and insisted he will remain at the Westfalenstadion next season.
The 24-year-old, who was recently included in Germany’s World Cup squad, has attracted a significant amount of interest from a number of clubs following a successful season for Jurgen Klopp’s side.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils have experienced a disastrous campaign that has left them without European football for the first time in 25 years and are planning to make several new signings in the summer in order to compete for silverware next season.
With the side clearly lacking a creative spark in the centre of the park, the Germany international has been touted as the man to install an attacking prowess to United’s midfield, but he has now revealed that he has no interest in leaving the Bundesliga outfit.
“I can definitely say that I will play for Dortmund next season. I don’t have to keep stressing how well I feel here,” he told reporters.
“After playing 10 years in the youth here I had to go a step back via Ahlen and Mönchengladbach to make two steps forward.
“Now I am back in Dortmund and – again – I feel totally well here and have a contract until 2017.”
The news is a blow for United, who will have to turn their attention to another target, with an attacking presence in midfield surely a priority for whoever takes the reins at Old Trafford in the coming weeks.
