Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has admitted that Marco Reus could leave in the coming transfer window as the likes of Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool are being linked heavily with the Germany international.
Reus has been linked with a move elsewhere in the last two months after stalling over a contract in June this year and Klopp felt that certain players want to move abroad to follow their dreams, “We had very successful years and we couldn’t keep all these players.
“Not all of them stayed here. They had their own dreams their own situations different ideas, whatever. So we will see (about Reus).
“The most important thing is the story of this club will go on. We’ll have to do it with other players.”
Dortmund have had some high-profile exits from their club in the last few years with likes of Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski leaving for pastures anew. Despite that, Dortmund have kept going and avoided a catastrophe, that is until this season. With the team struggling to find consistency in the league, a plethora of stars could leave in the summer if they fail to qualify for the Champions League. Mats Hummels and Reus are two big names that everyone are after at the moment so Klopp will have his work cut out in the next few months or so.
Reus is said to have a release clause of £27.6m, a fee which the top European clubs like Barcelona, Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool can easily afford. The former Monchengladbach man had his heart set out on a move to Barcelona last summer, but they went and signed Luis Suarez instead. With the transfer embargo in place, they will not be able to sign players in the next two transfer windows which could be a chance for the Premier League clubs to sign Reus.
