Marco Reus to stay in Dortmund despite interest from Manchester United
Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund has stated that he will remain at Borussia Dortmund next season in spite of the constant interest from Manchester United.
The 24-year-old ruled out the possibility of a move to Old Trafford in an interview with the German magazine Kicker.
“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 said.
The forward further stated, “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 German Cup] would be the first real trophy in my career, if you don’t count the Supercup last year. I worked hard on myself when I was injured. In the past there were too many games where I went missing. I wanted to change that.”
Manchester United will be expected to spend big this summer following their disappointing season. And Marco Reus has been viewed as one of the potential candidates for rebuilding the squad.
Since returning to Dortmund in 2012, Reus has not won a major trophy under Jurgen Klopp. He enjoyed a good 2013/14 season on a personal level and has helped his team to secure a Champions League spot for the next season.
