Germany international Marco Reus says he has ‘always dreamed of costing as much as Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho’.

Reus, 22, will join Borussia Dortmund from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Moenchengladbach at the end of the season for a reported fee of 17.5 million euros.

Zinedine Zidane’s move from Juventus to Real Madrid in 2001 for 56 million euros is the second most expensive transfer in football history.

Brazil international Ronaldinho commanded a sizeable fee of 32 million euros when he swapped Paris Saint-Germain for Barcelona two years later.

Speaking to Frankfurter Rundschau, promising forward Reus freely admitted he harboured ambitions of one day changing hands for a similar amount.

“This is obviously a lot of money,” he said.

“But I’ve always dreamed of costing as much as Zinedine Zidane and Ronaldinho.”

“I’m really not close to them. But the sum paid by Dortmund is quite remarkable.”

In a separate interview, Reus explained why he opted for Bundesliga champions Dortmund over fellow heavyweights Bayern Munich.

“Dortmund are more attractive than Bayern,” he told Badische Zeitung.

“And you get a feeling for which coach will help you develop most.”

“Dortmund is not a metropolis, but it is the best place for me from a footballing perspective.”
