Sir Jim Ratcliffe Makes final decision on Man United signing £20m Dortmund superstar for free this summer after agent spotted at Old Trafford


Reus is sure to be linked with Manchester United and a number of other Premier League clubs in the window as a result of his availability.

But Sir Jim Ratcliffe has already outlined why an Old Trafford move for Reus is extremely unlikely. United are set to sanction a number of exits this summer with only four players on the no-sale list.

The club will listen to offers for all other players and are unlikely to renew the contracts of several. Raphael Varane and Jonny Evans, both over 30, are set to leave upon the expiry of their deals, as is 28-year-old Anthony Martial.

Casemiro could make an exit two years after his arrival while United would have to sell fellow 32-year-old Christian Eriksen within the next two windows in order to get a fee for the Dane. The trajectory seems to be going one way with a real need for age balance within the squad.

United are searching for a pair of young centre-backs this summer with Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof set to be north of 30 by the start of next season. Lisandro Martinez is the only mid-20s option aged 26 while Willy Kambwala only made his debut in December aged 19.
