Borussia Dortmund have told Manchester United they can have Marco Reus if they pay £40million, according to the Daily Mail.

Reus was understood to have previously had a £29.4million buy-out-clause in his contract, however Dortmund have since changed that after Mario Gotze was allowed to join Bayern Munich in the summer after the Champions League winners had activated his release clause.

Now Manchester United find themselves in the position of having to decide whether to break their transfer record to sign the 24-year-old midfielder.

United scouts are understood to have been asking for ‘world class players for every position’ and Reus fits the bill.

Moyes has made strengthening his midfield the priority, although United are also thought to be in the market for new attacking players, as well as a left back, and a centre back , with the futures of Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra still uncertain.

The Premier League Champions have the funds available – they were prepared to match Real Madrid’s offer for Gareth Bale in the summer – and Moyes is ready to spend in January.

The main trouble lies in signing players Moyes would consider value for money, with most transfer targets tied up to Champions League clubs who are reluctant to sell at the midway point of the season.
