Bayern Munich Distanced Themselves From Manchester United’ Target Marco Reus
Bayern Munich have distanced themselves from a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Marco Reus, handing encouragement to the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea.
The Premier League trio, along with Bundesliga champions Bayern, have all been linked with a move for the German international, although Jose Mourinho last week said Chelsea were not interested in the midfielder.
But despite reports in recent weeks suggesting Pep Guardiola has practically sealed Reus’ arrival at the Allianz Arena, the club’s sporting director Matthias Sammer has now denied that a deal is in place.
‘There is no contact,’ he simply told German publication Kicker.
Borussia Dortmund have already sold both Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze to their German rivals in recent seasons and are not thought to be keen to let another top player go in the direction of Guardiola’s men.
But with Jurgen Klopp’s side struggling domestically this term, Reus may opt to quit the club while his personal stock remains high.
