The contract that currently ties Marco Reus to Borussia Dortmund is set to expire at the end of the season, but the experienced winger says he can’t imagine playing for any other club and is hoping for an extension soon.
Reus rose through the ranks at Dortmund, but at the age of 15 he left for Rot Weiss Ahlen where he received his first senior contract. He later joined Borussia Mönchengladbach and after spending three years there, returned to Dortmund at 22 and has made a total of 375 appearances in all competitions so far, scoring 159 goals and assisting 120. He has led the team for five years and has helped it win two German Cups and three Super Cups.
He was also named German Footballer of the Year twice, with 15 goals in 48 caps for Germany, and Bundesliga Player of the Year three times in his injury-ridden career.
Reus has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool in the past, but his allegiance to the Black and Yellow has always kept him at Signal Iduna Park.
