A number of English clubs had been linked to the 25-year-old. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City had all been rumoured to be interested in a move for the German star.

City had especially been linked with a big money transfer for Reus.

The Dortmund player apparently has a modest £20m release clause, so the bidding war was expected to come down to who could offer him the biggest wages.

However, Reus has reportedly shunned the mind-bogglingly huge deal on offer from Manuel Pellegrini’s side, and decided to stay in his home country with Bundesliga champions Bayern.

If this were to go through it would make him the third Dortmund star to leave for Munich in the last two seasons, following Mario Gotze in 2013, and Robert Lewandowski in 2014.
