The Germany star’s club hope he will stick around in his hometown…
Marco Reus has been linked with just about every club in Europe, but there’s one possibility that has not been widely considered: that the forward might stay at Dortmund.
Considering he has Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Chelsea and plenty more circling his player, you could forgive Dortmund chief Hans-Joachim Watzke for being resigned to losing his star. Instead, he’s full of hope:
“I believe that fundamentally Marco would love to stay here because he loves the city and he loves Borussia Dortmund,” Watzke was quoted saying by ITV.

“But I’m sure the people who are interested in him moving will provide him with other arguments.”
Reus was born and bred in Dortmund, and some Borussia fans cling onto the hope that he will stay put out of loyalty to the club.
Reus has missed most of the last 12 months through injury, but his bargain €25m release clause has kept all of Europe’s biggest clubs interested.
