Real Madrid are in pole position to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus, reports El Mundo Deportivo.
Los Blancos have established a good rapport with the player’s representative having held several meetings this summer, but they had no plans to recruit the Germany international in the summer transfer window.
Real Madrid officials aim to make an assault on Reus in a year’s time, but they obviously want to be informed if another club submit an offer for his services.
While Borussia Dortmund are eager to keep hold of their prized asset, it is believed the player himself is considering his options and much will depend on the outcome of the current season.
Reus has returned into action after missing the 2014 World Cup through injury and scored his first goal of the season in the 3-2 triumph over Augsburg.
He has been called into Germany squad for the international friendly against Argentina, where Joachim Low’s charges are 10/11 for the win.
