Chelsea join Arsenal and Man City in race for £20m star Marco Reus

Posted Sunday, December 07, 2014 by

CHELSEA have entered the battle for Germany’s coveted midfielder Marco Reus.

The Borussia Dortmund star has a £19.6million buy-out clause in his contract and Manchester City and Arsenal are already fighting to activate that.

But Chelsea are now involved, too, even though manager Jose Mourinho originally distanced himself from getting involved in the scrap for Reus, who missed the World Cup through injury.

The Daily Star understands that Chelsea now feel Reus, 25, is too good to miss at that fee.

Chelsea have Edin Hazard and Oscar established as two of the three players operating behind target-man Diego Costa.

The third spot is up for grabs and being contested by Willian, Ramires and Andre Schurrle.

Buit that place could now go to Reus, who not surprisingly has also been linked with Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

All that makes him the most-wanted obtainable player in the world.

Reus is under contract until 2017, but has rejected a new, enhanced deal at Dortmund.

The feeling on Germany is that he’ll move in the summer - or even in next month’s transfer window.
