Reus’s representatives were spotted at Saturday’s game with the Borussia Dortmund star weighing up his future.

The forward is out of contract in the summer and has confirmed he is considering his options ahead of a possible free transfer departure in the summer.

Erik ten Hag wants to continue to add to his side as he tries to turn United’s fortunes around

Man Utd are thought to be one of the clubs chasing his signature, with ten Hag seemingly keen to bring the German star on board his Old Trafford revolution.

Ten Hag held a meeting with Dirk Hebel and Darren Freeman following the game, though it is unclear if the talks were positive.

While the 33-year-old wouldn’t cost United a penny in terms of a transfer fee, it is thought his current wage is over £200,000 per week.

Freeman later shared a post on Instagram which showed the duo in attendance at Saturday’s game in Manchester

But ten Hag will again look to overhaul his playing squad in the summer as he continues to turn the club’s fortunes around, having seemingly turned them into Premier League title contenders this season.

Marcus Rashford has been a revolution out wide for the Dutchman’s side, but big-money summer signing Antony has struggled to settle on the right, with Jadon Sancho dealing with personal issues and youngsters such as Alejandro Garnacho and Anthony Elanga needing time to settle.

Reus would fit the mould of a player ready to perform in the present as the Red Devils aim to compete on all fronts, and can operate in a number of forward positions as an additional benefit.
