Man Utd handed major boost in their pursuit of 'incredible' forward as manager publicly apologises
| Last updated
Manchester United appear have been handed a boost in their pursuit to sign Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder Marco Reus on a free transfer this summer.
The 33-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season with his incredible 12 year stay at the German club about to come to an end.
Reus has made 372 appearances for BVB and has been directly involved in 275 goals during that period, but he was recently left out of their Champions League squad, suggesting that his time in a yellow shirt is over.
Despite winning their last 16 tie against Chelsea, Dortmund boss Edin Terzic publicly apologised to Reus after the game.
As reported by Tribal Football, he told DAZN: "Of course, I'm deeply sorry but it's not just about Marco. We also had other guys who didn't come on.
"He has to respect it. But don't accept it. He can show tomorrow in training and in the next few games that he doesn't accept it.
"But right now he has to respect it like everyone else."
Reus will surely be unhappy he didn't feature, and it could provide a major boost to clubs like United that are looking to sign him in the summer.
Ten Hag has met his agent
Despite having several options going forward Reus is an experienced player and would provide United with good depth.
According to journalist Christian Falk his agent was in the stands for United's win over rivals Manchester City back in January signalling that talks have already taken place.
Although nothing has been agreed he could become the Red Devils' first signing ahead of next season as they look to get closer to that coveted 14th Premier League title.
