Bayern chairman Rummenigge confirms the club have considered move for Dortmund’s Marco Reus

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed that the club have considered the possibility of signing Marco Reus from rivals Borussia Dortmund.

The current German champions have raided Dortmund in the past two summers for star players Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski.

Now it is apparent that Bayern would be interested in taking Marco Reus from Jurgen Klopp’s team. Rummenigge had previously claimed that Reus had a clause in his contract which meant he could be signed for €25m next year.

Speaking to Sport1, Rummenigge said: “If a German international has an exit clause and his contract is running out, Bayern is obliged to think about him. With Marco Reus his release clause is known.

“Whether we deal with it, I cannot seriously predict. We’ve talked too little internally about the subject.

“There are many great clubs from other countries who would be interested in signing Marco Reus.

“Of course they [Dortmund] will try to extend his contract. But at the end of the day the player will decide what he wants.”
