The German was the objective of many European big clubs
One of the most wanted players in the world, Marco Reus will stay in Borussia Dortmund as this Tuesday he renewed his contract. Barça were interested in him because of his attacking abilities, but also other clubs had an eye on him: Bayern Munich, Real Madrid or different teams from the Premier League.
Despite that Reus signed his renewal with Borussia expending his contract until 2019. He will also improve his salary. According to some media, he will receive about €10 million per year.
After the renewal, Reus was happy: “Dortmund is my city and Borussia is my club. There’s much to do and I want to help the team get more titles for all our fans.”
Renewal thinking in Barça
Despite this seems a closed door for Barcelona, some consider that this is positive for the blaugrana team: this might show that Reus won’t leave to another big club this summer, and that Barça will be able to send him a good offer when FIFA’s ban is over, in January or summer 2016. Remember that Reus has always shown admiration for Barça and Messi.
