Atlético Madrid currently have their sights set on Marco Reus, although a potential move to the Spanish capital for the German star could be complicated. The midfielder does not want to renew his contract with Borussia Dortmund, which will force them to sell the Germany international if they want to avoid a similar scenario to the one that occurred last season with Robert Lewandowski’s move to Bayern. The Bavarian outfit are also interested in hiring the player’s services, though relations between the two clubs have become strained after Rummenigge’s comments about Reus’s release clause.
This could work to Atlético’s advantage given that Borussia Dortmund will be keen to avoid selling the player to a direct rival like Bayern and will not want them to take another player off their hands. Reus would be a perfect fit in Atlético as they look to fill the gap left by Diego Ribas, although the 25-million-euro asking price could be one step too far for Los Rojiblancos.
