According to the Sports Direct News, Manchester United and Manchester City are set to battle it out for the signature of Germany international Marco Reus.

Reus is reportedly valued at £32 million and the two Manchester clubs are the 'front runners' to sign him this summer.

Even though the rumor is unlikely to be true, we look at three reasons why Reus could be a great addition to David Moyes' squad.


Reus is an immensely versatile player who can practically play all along the attacking line.                     

His favored position is on the left flank but the German has excelled as a No 10 as well.

With Reus among his ranks, Moyes will be automatically provided with a wide variety of attacking options and optimum fluidity in the final third.


Reus has all the skills to flourish in the Premier League- pace, dribbling finesse, passing skills, eye for goal, vision and the ability to beat his marker on a consistent basis.  

At 24, he is yet to enter the prime of his career, but is already regarded as one of the best attackers in Europe.

He is a quick thinker, understands the flow of game superbly and can link up exceptionally well.The German's raw attributes can completely transform the United attack.

Cheapest Option

Even if United spend £32 million on Reus, it will be a cheaper investment than their other two prime wing targets, namely Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

Frankly, Reus is as good as Bale, but is yet to draw the attention of the media vultures in the same manner like the Spurs man.

Ronaldo will obviously be a better signing than Reus but the latter triumphs in the age factor and is a safer prospect for the future.
