Marco Reus Wanted by Milan

According to Turin outlet Tuttosport, Milan are looking into the possibility of bringing Puma poster boy and long time Dortmund Man Marco Reus to the San Siro. Who’s pushing for the move you ask? None other than the German company themselves (Puma). The Rossoneri will send scouts to watch Reus play against Atalanta in the second leg of Europa.

While Marco Reus solves our problem of the absence of a true left winger, this move isn’t logical for Milan. Marco Reus is my favorite player not wearing a Milan jersey in all of football and I would love to see him in red and black, but there’s too many things wrong with this move. The first being he’s quite obviously injury prone. Reus hasn’t played a full season since the 14/15 season which poses an immediate problem to a team trying to reach the pinnacle of football as fast as it can to avoid financial discourse. The second is that Milan wouldn’t have the money to pry Reus away from the Signal Iduna. Not only would it take a significant few, but Reus has consistently turned teams down before, so what would make him move to a team not playing as well as his own that he’s been at for as long as he has.

Reus would be an exciting and flashy signing and when healthy there’s no doubt he’d be a gem of an addition, but I don’t know how much truth there is to all of this.
