Man United & Arsenal At War For World Cup Star
According to his ex-Dortmund team mate Mario Gotze, Marco Reus has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford in the summer - and that news will be a massive boost to David Moyes' restructuring plans.
There have been rumblings of a transfer ever since the Scot took the reins in the north west, and with a £200million war chest to play with, the rumoured £40million asking price for the German should be no problem for the Reds, as they bid to fight their way back into the European elite.
But would the player be worth it? On the face of it, the answer would be a resounding YES: United have looked short on impetus and attacking threat all season, relying too heavily on a wet-behind-the-ears Januzaj in his first professional season, and Reus is fast, direct and has bags of goals behind him.
And with the likes of Robin van Persie and Chicarito both said to be considering their exit plans, Moyes desperately needs to add some attacking flair to his arsenal - something that Reus, as one of the potential stars of the next World Cup, has in abundance.
Speaking of Arsenal, they're interest in the German's signature too - but with Arsene's notorious reluctance to splash the cash, and Moyes already sat with ink pot and chequebook in hand, the Gunners could be a bit slow on the up take. Again.
