Marco Reus ready for one last high-profile career decision


Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has made an interesting revelation regarding his future.

The 28-year-old is currently sidelined with a cruciate ligament tear that he picked up in the German Cup Final against Eintracht Frankfurt and is targeting a return to action in 2018.

Despite enduring a stop-start career with Borussia Dortmund as a result of constant injury problems, Marco Reus has maintained an excellent goal-to-game ratio at the club – scoring 89 times in 189 appearances. He is one of the few players who have stayed on board with the club after high-profile exits from the likes of Mats Hummels, Ivan Perisic, Ilkay Gundogan, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele.

Speaking with GQ Magazine, the former Borussia Monchengladbach man admitted he wasn’t sure where he would end up at the end of his contract, claiming it would be his ‘last chance’ to try something different.

“There are four or five international clubs who interest me. On May 31 next year, I will turn 30. That would be my last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different,” said Reus.

“I have to be honest and fair and say I don’t know where I’ll end up. At the moment, I’m very happy in Dortmund and not thinking about what happens after 2019.”

Reports from German outlet Bild are claiming that Arsenal and Manchester United are interested in offering the injury-plagued forward a fresh new start in England when his contract expires in 2019.
