Germany and Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus on Thursday issued a statement distancing himself from a possible move to Bayern Munich. Though the 25-year-old has a contract with the BVB through 2017, a 25 million-euro ($31.3 million) release clause in his contract kicks in at the end of this season. The fact that Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge revealed this to the public has angered Dortmund officials, but Reus, it seems, wants to remind everyone that he has not made a decision about his future, yet.
“At the moment there are a lot of people talking about my future,” the player said in a statement. “There is a lot of speculation and a lot is being written. So I would like to take this opportunity to say that other people are thinking more about my future than me.” Reus, who issued the statement ahead of Dortmund’s visit to Bayern’s Allianz Arena on Saturday, added: “The only thing that is certain is that we are on our way to Munich to get the points for Dortmund.”
Reus & Co., are currently 15th in the Bundesliga standings following a terrible start to the season, with six defeats in nine games.
