Atletico Madrid reportedly submit €27M bid for Marco Reus
Atletico Madrid have reportedly submitted a €27 million bid for Borussia Dortmund attacking midfielder, Marco Reus.
According to Spanish radio station, Cadena Cope, Atletico Madrid are in negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over the sale of the 25-year-old star.
The report states that the deal could be finalised in the coming days with Atleti paying €17 million up front and a second payment of €10 million in January.
They also state that Barcelona are also in negotiations with Dortmund for the German international over the past several days.
Spanish sports daily AS reported this past Monday that Atlético Madrid were hoping to take advantage of strained relations between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund as they continue to monitor Reus’ situation.
Atlético Madrid were wary of paying €35 million for the 25-year-old, but are hoping that Borussia Dortmund would be willing to lower their asking price so as to avoid selling the player to arch-rivals, Bayern Munich.
Reus currently has three years remaining on his current deal and Borussia Dortmund and Reus have both insisted that there is no truth to any transfer rumours.
