Marco Reus’ future at Dortmund could finally be in severe doubt, as the German superstar has recently spoken about his plans to leave Dortmund after the end of his current control. In an interview with the GQ magazine, Reus looked adamant to make one final move before the end of his career.

Although club’s sporting director Michael Zorc was quick to deny the rumours, claiming that the club sees Marco Reus in its long-term plans in the future, Marco Reus’ future with Dortmund firmly hangs in the balance. And considering big clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal still interested, a move to the Premier League could be on the horizon for the German attacker.

In this article, we will talk about the two aforementioned clubs and who might prove to be the better fit for the 28-year-old winger from Borussia Dortmund.


The Gunners were interested in the services of Marco Reus for a long time but they seem to be needing him more than ever at the moment. Both of their star players in the attacking department are claimed to be unsettled at the club.

While Mesut Ozil is grudging over extending his contract at Arsenal, Chilean Alexis Sanchez has firmly set his sights on leaving the Emirates as soon as possible. Meaning, Marco Reus will have a big role to play should he plan to move to Arsenal.

The Gunners will be hugely aided by the arrival of the German superstar and the player, himself will also cherish the playing time he will be given at his new club, following the departure of their star players. Made no mistake, a move to the Emirates can be an ideal transfer for Marco Reus, as he looks for one final adventure in pastures new.

Manchester United

While Manchester United may not face the situation of seeing their best players leave the club, the Red Devils, do, however, imminently need the services of a world-class attacker in their ranks. The recent games against Huddersfield and Liverpool have showcased their lack of firepower up front, which could tempt Jose Mourinho to make a move for Marco Reus next summer.

However, choosing Manchester United over Arsenal could prove to be a heinous decision for the 28-year-old. Considering the defensive-minded system of Jose Mourinho, it’ll be hard for Marco Reus to prevail under the circumstances. The Red Devils lack the proper tempo in their offensive game, which may well drastically decrease Reus’ sphere of influence.

All things considered, a move to Arsenal seems like the most logical destination for the German International. However, Reus has always remained loyal to his hometown club Borussia Dortmund and it’s really hard to imagine him departing the Signal Iduna Park anytime soon.
