It has emerged that Manchester United tried to sign Marco Reus from Borussia Dortmund this summer, but the forward snubbed the approach.
Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo has been speaking about his own club’s interest in Reus and has revealed that the Reds Devils looked to land him themselves.
“He had an offer for a lot of money from Manchester United and he has not gone… we will not sign him with a lesser offer,” Cerezo was quoted by the Daily Mail.
Both Arsenal and Liverpool have also shown interest in the Germany international in recent times, who has a release clause of just £19.8m which comes into effect next summer.
This fact was revealed – much to the annoyance of Dortmund – by Bayern Munich and their own president Franz Beckenbauer has also admitted his club would like to sign Reus.
Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid are also understood to be interested in the 25-year-old and Jurgen Klopp faces an almost impossible task to hold onto his star player.
United are still looking for a marquee signing for new manager Louis van Gaal after chief executive Ed Woodward revealed the 13-time Premier League champions are in a position to break the world transfer record.
So far this summer Ander Herrera has been signed from Athletic Bilbao and Luke Shaw joined from Southampton, whilst a fee has been agreed for Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo.
