Borussia Dortmund are preparing a lucrative contract proposal for attacking midfielder Marco Reus as they seek to prevent him leaving the club.

Reus has a clause in his contract which will become active next summer, estimated at between €25m and €35m, and is known to be on the radar at a number of clubs, including Bayern Munich, Barcelona, Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid.

Dortmund are desperate not to lose the 25-year-old and have been negotiating to remove the clause from his contract.

So far however Jurgen Klopp's men have not met with success.


They are though stepping up their efforts and according to German outlet Sport Bild, are ready to increase Reus' salary to between €8m and €10m if he agrees to remove the clause in his contract.


Reus missed the World Cup earlier this summer after picking up an ankle injury, with Germany winning the tournament in his absence.

His current contract at Dortmund runs until the summer of 2017 and coach Klopp recently expressed his view that the midfielder will be at the club for the long term.

"I have a really good feeling about Marco Reus. He will be us for some years", Klopp said.
