Man United & Arsenal buoyed by German ace’s clause

Marco Reus (Dortmund)Manchester United and Arsenal are all set to up their interest in Borussia Dortmund winger Marco Reus now it has been revealed that he has a release clause in his current contract.

The German international is widely regarded as one of the Bundesliga’s brightest talents, and has been a key member of the Champions League runners-ups’ squad for some time.

His fine displays have alerted sides from across the continent, with Arsenal, United and City all thought to be keen to lure him to England.

Originally it was believed that a deal may be beyond their reach, such is Dortmund’s desire to keep Reus.

But, club executive, Hans-Joachim Watzke, has revealed that the 24-year-old will be allowed to leave if the clause is triggered:

“Marco Reus possesses a release clause option in his current contract at our club,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.

“He could leave our club due to that.

“He is, however, the only player in our first-team squad that has such a contract clause.”

The figure in question is believed to be in the region of £30m.

The English trio are all thought to be willing to meet the sum, but may face a fight to convince Reus to leave Dortmund.

Should Arsenal, Manchester United or Manchester City trigger Marco Reus’ release clause?
