The German international had a chance to sign for different top clubs in Europe, but he decided to stay with the Bundesliga side.

Marco Reus is one of those talents that everybody wants to have.

But the German international is also one of those footballers who is loyal to his team.

In this case, he has had offers to play in the top clubs in Europe but has decided to stay with Borussia Dortmund.

“For example, in summer 2015, my boss Dirk Hebel sat in the Dusseldorf airport hotel with Barcelona’s Raul Sanllehi,” he told Goal.

“Six months later, the Catalan club’s officials, led by Robert Fernandez, launched another attempt to lure Reus to Spain.”

“They were as unsuccessful as Arsenal’s Richard Law, who had a total of three meetings, as were Ivan Gazidis of AC Milan and Olivier Letang of Paris Saint-Germain and representatives of both Manchester clubs,” he added.

“Of course, I have been thinking about the offers of these top clubs for more than a day, everything else would be a lie.”

“But in the end, I always chose my club, and I still do not regret it to this day,” Reus affirmed.

“Because I belong here. Because Dortmund is my club. And I really want to win the Bundesliga with this club.”

“I want to be DFB Pokal winner again. I want to be in the Champions League final again. Knowing that you have three, four good years, every year you try to get the most out of it,” he concluded.
