    According to the Daily Mail's Simon Jones, Manchester United manager David Moyes—described as a "Bundesliga buff"—has "great admiration" for Reus. 

    Jones writes that the German is available for a team willing to pay his buy-out clause, but the value of his buy-out clause is not specified. The report also claims the 24-year-old is concerned about United's place among Europe's elite.  

    United assistant Steve Round reportedly watched Reus play Marseille recently in the UEFA Champions League.

    In a report published on Tuesday, The Independent's Charles Reynolds quoted Reus' buy-out clause at £30 million.

    According to the report, Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp hopes his side can close the gap on Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich—or else risk losing the player. Dortmund currently trail Bayern by 12 points.

    Reynolds writes that a January transfer is unlikely for Reus, but adds that Manchester United could sign him in the summer.
