According to Spanish radio station Cadena Cope, Atletico Madrid have bid for, and are in serious negotiation with Borussia Dortmund for Marco Reus.
Cadena Cope claim that the negotiations have entered the ‘decisive moments’, with a €27m fee on the table – €17m up front, and the remaining €10m in January.
Though Dortmund have denied they’ve had any talks for their striker all summer, insisting he’s not for sale anyway, Cadena Copa claim these negotiaions with Atletico have been ongoing for some time now.
Ineed, Cadena Copa claim that Atletico have a ‘Yes’ from Reus, and now just need to convince the Dortmund chiefs, who are loath to lose yet another player to Bayern Munich, and may sell just to in order to avoid that sorry fate.
There’s been a bit of surprise that Atletico and Simeone would have the ‘cojones’ to make such an audacious bid, but they are La Liga champions after all.
But the story does have a few holes in it – just €27m for Marco ‘Rolls’ Reus? That’s less than 2 Shane Longs!
