Fallen European giant offers Reus fresh start

Matt Morley by Matt Morley @rfutbol - 0 2,165

After his recent injury hell, Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus has begun to consider his future away from Signal Iduna Park and what was once one of the biggest teams in Europe may be set to give him the chance to restart his career overseas.

Reus was recently quoted as saying that 'On May 31 next year, I will turn 30. That would be my last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different.' That quote led to speculation that the Germany international is eyeing up a move overseas when his contract expires in 18 months' time and if reports in Italy are to be believed, AC Milan are set to make a move for the 28-year-old.

Italian source 'CalcioMercato' reports that the Lombardy-based side have been in touch with Dortmund about a potential deal for the forward.

AC have been on the search for a global star to take their rebuilding job to the next level and Reus certainly fits their criteria. Furthermore, the 'Rossoneri' believe that a deal to bring the player to club club would be more straightforward now that his sponsors, Puma, are set to become AC's new kit manufacturer after they cut ties with Adidas.

In Italy, Reus would be given a chance to rebuild his confidence and his career, which has been brought to a standstill by injuries in recent times. He would be treated as the club's star man and everything would be done to make the player feel at home, according to the aformentioned source.

However, Vincenzo Montella's side face a battle to win the player's services, with the likes of Arsenal, Manchester United and arch-rivals Inter Milan also following the situation closely.
