War-of-Words Persists over Reus' Future

MOST COMMENTED

The war-of-words between German giants Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich over the long-term future of BVB forward Marco Reus, who is currently out injured, have persisted all summer long, with Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealing that the German international has a release clause in his contract that could be activated at the end of the season for just 25 million euros ($33.3 million).  That price would be a virtual steal for one of Germany’s brightest talents, and several top European clubs, including Bayern, are keeping a close eye on how the 25-year-old performs this campaign.

Meanwhile, the war-of-words between Germany’s top two teams is showing no signs of stopping. Last week, BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told the German media he would like to see Rummenigge “keep his mouth shut for once,” while his Bayern counterpart Matthias Sammer instantly fired back with “We will not allow anyone to forbid us to speak.”

Most recently, Bayern honorary president Franz Beckenbauer wrote in Bild that Dortmund will "hardly be able to keep” Reus after this season, prompting BVB CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke to say: "It's a nice party game -- everyone has his say. It sucks, but by now everyone should have had his say."
