According to Spanish website El Confidencial, Marco Reus has reached an agreement with Real Madrid over a potential contract that would be signed next summer. Los Blancos would pay €25 million to sign him away from Borussia Dortmund and Reus would reportedly sign a 5-year deal for €7 million/year. This contract would be similar to the one that Kroos signed after completing his move to the Spanish capital.
While Ancelotti doesn't need Reus right now, it's also true that he would also welcome a game-changing presence on his bench, whether that's Reus or somebody else.
Whether Real Madrid will sell some players to make room for Reus or not is something that remains to be seen.
