Real Madrid target Marco Reus taking Spanish lessons

According to German newspaper Bild, Marco Reus has been taking Spanish lessons for three weeks. The German player has strongly been linked with Real Madrid over the last couple of seasons, and a €25 million buyout clause in his contract will be activated next summer.

Reus is also rumored to be under FC Barcelona's radar, but considering that the Catalans are banned from making any transfers until January 2016, it makes much more sense to connect Bild's report to Real Madrid's interest. Even though Real Madrid have a deep roster upfront, it would probably make sense for Los Blancos to sign Reus if he's available at that price.

Bild's sources are always reliable when it comes to German football, and they are well-connected to Bayern Munich, a club that, according to the outlet, were also interested in signing Marco Reus. One way or another, it seems that the German winger will leave Dortmund soon, although his final destination remains to be confirmed.

It should be noted that Ancelotti himself stated that Reus is "the best German player next to Kroos and Khedira", which means that the courtship has probably begun.
