Bundesliga giants to rival Reds for Germany playmaker.
Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that the club are keeping tabs on Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus and will rival Liverpool and Manchester United for his signature, according to the Daily Star.
The talented playmaker is stalling on signing a new deal with Dortmund, after attracting some serious interest from the Premier League giants.
Dortmund are desperate to secure Reus to a new contract, due to a £28m buyout clause, inserted into his current deal, which becomes active next summer.
But Bayern chief Rummenigge, who played his part in bringing fellow Dortmund stars Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski to the club has confirmed that they are looking to make it a hat trick by snaring Reus, too.
“If a German international has an exit clause and his contract is running out, Bayern is obliged to think about him,” he said.
“With Marco Reus, his release clause is known.
“Whether we deal with it, I cannot seriously predict. We’ve talked too little internally about the subject.
“There are many great clubs from other countries who would be interested in signing Marco Reus.
“Of course they [Dortmund] will try to extend his contract. But at the end of the day the player will decide what he wants.”
