One of the shock deals of the summer was Manchester United wonder-kid Adnan Januzaj joining Borussia Dortmund on loan as The Mirror reports that the 20-year-old Belgian is being used as a ground work to bring German superstar Marco Reus from the Signal Iduna Park.
Mirror also says that the Red Devils are prepared to use the youngster as a part of the deal to bring Marco Reus next summer.
It has been a long time that the Superstar forward has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford along with most of the elite clubs in Europe and manager Louis van Gaal rates the German very highly.
Marco Reus comes with a bag of versatility, creativity, technique and a lot of goals. Primarily a left winger, he can play as a center forward, right winger and attacking midfielder and scores a lot of goals.
But he has been cursed with a lot of injuries since last season and also missed the 2014 FIFA World Cup which his country won.
Linked with many top clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Liverpool, United, the superstar extended his contract with the BVB in February for four more years and ended the speculations despite his team’s dismal season.
Reus has scored five goals in six games this season for Dortmund under new boss Thomas Tuchel, who are in the Europa League this season.
It’s understood United plan to keep a close eye on the experienced star, in tandem with watching Januzaj’s progress in the Bundesliga and Europa League.
And United will continue to keep an eye on the progress of Bournemouth winger Matt Ritchie following his impressive start to the season.
The Scotland international, 25, has played his way into Van Gaal’s radar and was among those considered to be possible one of the late options during the transfer window should the Dutchman have decided to add more depth to his squad.
Manchester United decided not to follow up on their interest then but will watch his development with the Premier League newcomers.
Ritchie signed a new deal at Bournemouth in January which runs until June 2018.
Capped four times by Scotland, he joined the Cherries from Swindon two years ago, having started his career at Portsmouth, spending time on loan at Dagenham & Redbridge, Notts County and finally Swindon, earning a permanent move to the County Ground in 2011.
