Reports from Germany indicated this Monday that Marco Reus was going to sign a contract extension with Borussia Dortmund. And they were not wrong.

Borussia Dortmund announced the new deal on their official website. Although the details of this contract have not been announced, it seems that Reus' €25 million buyout clause has not been included, meaning that any team wanting to sign him away from Dortmund will need to negotiate with the German club.

Reus was reported to be under Real Madrid, FC Barcelona, Manchester United and some other clubs' radar, and these transfer rumors will surely keep going. For example, Luis Suárez also signed a new deal with Liverpool just months before completing his move to FC Barcelona.

Still, Reus' price tag will increase, and it will be interesting to see how much some clubs are willing to spend.
