Man United have a brilliant replacement for Wayne Rooney in mind


Manchester United are not going to be able to accommodate every player they are linked with ahead of the summer transfer window.

Jose Mourinho cannot possibly be pursuing Antoine Griezmann, Romelu Lukaku, James Rodriguez, and Kylian Mbappe all at once, so these reports should probably be restrained a little.

A new name has cropped up in the rumour mill, however, and that is Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund.

Spanish publication Don Balon report that Mourinho has identified the Germany international as a potential replacement for Wayne Rooney, though this claim was made in the context of the forward also being targeted by Atletico Madrid.


Diego Simeone is a big admirer of the 27-year-old despite his persistent injury problems, but he could find his club vying with United. BVB won’t stop Reus leaving if he wants to continue his career away from the Bundesliga.

With captain Rooney set to depart a year earlier than expected, United are looking for a similarly versatile player who can play up front or slightly further behind the striker.

Reus knows Henrikh Mkhitaryan well from Dortmund, and it would certainly be interesting to see the pair link up again next season.
