Marco Reus has had no contact from Bayern Munich, says agent

Reus

The agent of Borussia Dortmund attacker Marco Reus insists rivals Bayern Munich have not moved for the German.

Dirk Hebel, Reus’ agent, has said that he has not heard from the Bavarian giants about the possible transfer of his client, according to Goal.

“We had no contact with Bayern,” Hebel told German newspaper Bild.

The Dortmund star is under contract until 2017, but it is a target for many high-profile European clubs after his sensational form last year.

One of those clubs being Bayern Munich. The Bavarians’ chairman upset Dortmund fans by publicly discussing their player and the release clause in his contract.

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed the German international’s release fee will fall from £28 million to £20 million next summer, alerting a host of European sides.

Rummenigge’s comments seem to have been intended to antagonise Bayern’s Bundesliga rivals, who remain hopeful of retain their man.

“[We will] definitely try to keep him long term,” Dortmund’s Sporting Director Michael Zorc told Sport1.

“Marco is not only a hugely important player for us because of his athletic performance, but also in his role as a poster boy.”

The attacker is originally from Dortmund and was a fan before he played for the German giants. Following the departure of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski over the past two seasons, Reus has become the talisman in the side.

His sensational return of 16 goals and 13 assists from 29 games is testament to his talent and goes some way to explaining why the likes of Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich are keen on the 25-year-old.

Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has hailed the German as a “crazy” genius, stating that Reus “earned his place in heaven” during the 6-2 annihilation of Hamburg last season.
