Reus tipped to make Nou Camp move.
Barcelona may be the new favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus next summer ahead of the likes of Manchester City and Bayern Munich, according to Bild.
The German international is known to be local to Dortmund and a lifelong fan of the club, but he is also a big admirer of the history and style of Barcelona, which could prove decisive as he ponders his next club.
Reus is widely expected to leave Dortmund in the summer as a release clause comes into effect, with a host of top clubs chasing him, though it looks as though Bayern Munich have pulled out of the race due to his high wage demands.
This could put Man City in a strong position, but it seems more likely that Reus himself would favour a move to the Nou Camp, with Barca also known to be keen to sign him and improve their attacking options.
Still, the Catalan giants must face a transfer ban and this could complicate matters for the time being.
