Bayern to discuss Reus move

Cape Town - Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has hinted that the German champions could trigger the release clause in Dortmund attacker Marco Reus' contract.

The Bavarian giants missed out on the signing of the Germany international back in 2009 when he opted to join BVB from Borussia Monchengladbach.

Bayern subsequently signed Reus' team-mates Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski, and according to Rummenigge they are now weighing up whether to return to Dortmund with a bid for the 25-year-old.

If they do launch a bid for Reus, they will presumably have to trigger his release clause, believed to be around €25 million, due to Dortmund's reluctance to part with their prized asset.

Rummenigge told Kicker: "To be honest, we'll discuss the matter internally and calmly. Then we will come to a decision.

"At the end of the day, the player has to decide too. His release clause is well known. There's nothing more to say."

To date, Reus has made 63 appearances for Die Borussen, scoring 31 goals in the process.
