Real Madrid are reportedly willing to sign Marco Reus next summer. According to El Chiringuito de Jugones and As, the Borussia Dortmund player will not sign a contract extension, which means that the German club will have to sell him next summer if they don't want to see him walking away for free and revisit the Lewandowski saga, as Reus' contract expires on 2016.

Neither El Chiringuito nor As are 100% reliable, so these rumors should be taken with a grain of salt, as always, but it does seem that Reus will leave Dortmund for a considerably cheap transfer fee, because apparently, his contract includes a release clause as well. With Jesé coming back from his injury, it wouldn't make much of a sense to make a move for Reus next summer, but it could be argued that a player of his quality should always be signed if the price tag is reasonable enough.

Reus was rumored to be under Real Madrid's radar this summer as well, so it's for certain that there will be plenty of transfer talk over the next few months if he finally decides not to sign an extension with Borussia Dortmund.
