Manchester City fans are given a boost of confidence in the Football Transfer Tavern as they have surged ahead of Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United in the race to sign to Borussia Dortmund’s star.
According to The Express, Manuel Pellegrini has got his nose in front of his Premier League rivals as he closing in on the signing of Marco Reus.
It’s reported that the Chilean manager is monitoring the flamboyant forward and has asked for updates regarding his availability.
Although Dortmund boss, Jurgen Klopp, will be furious with talk linking his star with a move to the Etihad Stadium as he contracted to the club until 2017, but his current deal includes a buy-out clause of only £20 million.
It is expected that Manchester City will activate this buy-out clause, leaving Klopp helpless as the Sky Blues come swooping in for their man.
Punters in the tavern are buzzing at the prospect of the 25-year-old plying his trade in the Premier League.
He is currently recovering from ankle ligament damage but any club who is able to tie him up will be in for a treat after he played 45 games in all competitions last-season, racking up 23 goals with a further 18 assists.
