Not all players are prolific in several areas of the playing field. Some have mastered two areas of the field but few could match the quality and ability which Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund could bring into play on the football pitch.
He can play as a central midfielder behind the striker because of his ability to use both feets effectively on the ball. He can also play on the left wing of the pitch as well as the right wing. His quality and prolificacy as made him the toast of the big clubs in the top leagues of the globe.
The wranglings concerning his contract renewal at Borussia Dortmund as gotten to a crescendo following his refusal to renew his contract. This as put the top clubs on alert. Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City to name a few have all expressed interest in the player. His reported £20m release clause which comes into effect next summer seems not to be helping matters.
Manchester City in its bid to cement its status as an elite playing football club has been linked with him. Taking a peek into their English Premier League conquering team of the 2013/2014 season will reveal the efficacy and influence of Yaya Toure the current African footballer of the year. But, in the present 2014/2015 season, he looks every inch a shadow of his former self which he has received a lot of stick for in the games which he has featured for Manchester City so far. This as affected the effectiveness and deadliness of the team.
If they could acquire the services of Marco Reus, then definitely they would be acquiring a star which will arouse the envy of the opposition. His signature will be an eye-catching event which will generate a lot of attention. This will bring about an increase in their firepower which would signal an intention of purpose. It will also reduce the burden on Yaya Toure and now seemingly injury prone Aguero.
Acquiring his services will also cement the club’s desire to be ranked among the elite clubs in world football. It gives Manuel Pellegrini, a lot of options regarding the style of play which stems from the ability of Reus to play in different positions on the field. It also gives them a player who is hungry and desirous for success and who can do whatever it requires to achieve his desire.
His signature also means that they will be effectively acquiring the services of a match changer who can come up with the goods when required. At 25, they are also acquiring a young man who still has the ability to develop as a footballer, in effect his good days are still ahead.
The club will be purchasing the services of a young man who Bloomberg ranked as the fourth best footballer in Europe in 2013. Capturing him might be a tug of war between the top clubs of Europe, but if Manchester City can purchase him, it is worth it.
This is a player who have the ability to dictate the trends of a game. He has the energy, strength, vision, intelligence and desire to change a game in an instant. These and many more are what he will bring to the club if they could convince him to cross over to the blue side of the Manchester based clubs seeking his services. Definitely, he is a good buy.
