Infamous LFC target ‘wants to try something different,’ with contract up in 2019

Could it be?! After all these years?!

Probably not, in truth!

But Marco Reus, who we reckon has been linked to Liverpool every summer since 2014, appears unlikely to finish his playing career with Borussia Dortmund.

The German winger, whose past few years have been decimated by unfortunate injuries, has intimated he may try a new venture on the expiration of his current deal, which runs out after next season.

“On May 31 next year [2019], I will turn 30. That would be my last big contract and a final opportunity to try something different,” he said, cited in the Echo.

“I have to be honest and fair and say I don’t know where I’ll end up. At the moment, I’m very happy in Dortmund and not thinking about what happens after 2019.

“But, of course, the time will come and then I will sit down and calmly make a decision.”

Reus is genuinely world-class when healthy, but he’s already passed the age that FSG and Jurgen Klopp consider for big signings.

The oldest player we’ve spent proper money on since the German arrived is 26-year-old Virgil van Dijk, with Gini Wijnaldum, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita all 25 and under at the time or purchase.

Reus’s injury record also makes him far too much of a risk, sadly. We’d just like him to get fit and start performing how he did between 2012 and 2014.
