Marco Reus 'could finally leave Borussia Dortmund this summer' and end incredible 12-year era

Marco Reus 'could finally leave Borussia Dortmund this summer' and end incredible 12-year era

Reus could finally depart Signal Iduna Park.

Marco Reus could finally leave Borussia Dortmund this summer after 12 years at the club, according to reports.

The Germany international joined Dortmund in the summer of 2012 from Borussia Monchengladbach, and has scored 167 goals in all competitions across his time at the club.

He has also racked up over 400 appearances for Dortmund, with several seasons as club captain, and is still a regular member of the squad at 34 years of age.

Reus signed a one-year contract extension in April to keep him at the German club until the summer of 2024, but is yet to pen fresh terms to extend that deal further.

And according to Foot Mercato journalist Santi Aouna, a number of clubs are interested in signing the forward on a free transfer if his contract does expire in June.

It is claimed that a number of unnamed MLS sides are keen to attract Reus to the United States, while his former club Monchengladbach are also considering a potential swoop.

The 34-year-old is currently free to discuss a pre-contract with foreign clubs, as he has entered the last six months of his existing deal.

Reus signed for Dortmund as one of the hottest prospects in world football, and a goal tally of 42 across his first two seasons with the club proved his ability.

He was in line to play for Germany at the 2014 World Cup - a tournament they won - but suffered an injury in a warm-up match in a sign of what was about to come.


After a lean season in Jurgen Klopp's final campaign in charge, scoring just seven goals, he responded by firing in 17 goals during Thomas Tuchel's first campaign as manager.

And while injuries would soon become a sticking point for Reus, he still fired in 42 goals from just 64 appearances across the following four seasons.

Although his goal returns have diminished in recent seasons at Signal Iduna Park, his general availability has been a major positive for Dortmund, with only an ankle problem and illness limiting his game time over the past two campaigns.

And to underline his longevity as a Dortmund player, only Mats Hummels is still at the club from the Dortmund squad that welcomed Reus in 2012 - and the centre-back spent three years at Bayern Munich inbetween.
