Reus going nowhere despite Bayern interest – Watzke

The club’s CEO has dismissed suggestions that the attacker, 25, will leave Jurgen Klopp’s side this summer and says a contract renewal is possible

Marco Reus will not be leaving Borussia Dortmund for Bayern Munich or anywhere else in the near future, according to club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke.

The 25-year-old attacker has been continuously linked away from Signal Iduna Park this summer, with his agent claiming many top clubs are vying for the Germany international’s signature.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge suggested that Pep Guardiola’s men would not rush into a transfer for Reus, despite many suggesting he would follow Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski from BVB to the Allianz Arena.

And it seems that Reus will be clung on to by Jurgen Klopp for the 2014-15 campaign as the club’s chief has claimed that a contract renewal may well be around the corner.

“We have said many times this summer that Reus will not leave,” he told Kicker. “Marco will play with us next season.

“There is no possibility that he will play elsewhere. We will try to tie him to our club for longer and we are proceeding with peace of mind that he will renew his deal.”

Reus has been with Dortmund since 2012, when he joined for around €17 million, and his current contract runs until June 30, 2017.
