Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus has insisted that he does not regret taking up offers from the likes of Barcelona and Arsenal, after his agent revealed that there were many top clubs vying for the services of the German international.


Dortmund signed Reus in 2012 from Borussia Monchengladbach, and the German international has been consistently performing for the ​Bundesliga club since then. He extended his contract in 2015, and back then, many top clubs were interested in signing him, as per his agent Kai Psotta.


"For example, in summer 2015, my boss Dirk Hebel sat in the Dusseldorf airport hotel with Barcelona's Raul Sanllehi. Six months later, the Catalan club's officials, led by Robert Fernandez, launched another attempt to lure Reus to Spain," Psotta told GQ, according to Goal.


"They were as unsuccessful as Arsenal's Richard Law, who had a total of three meetings, as were Ivan Gazidis of ​AC Milan [then still with Arsenal] and Olivier Letang of Paris Saint-Germain and representatives of both Manchester clubs."

However, Reus has not shown any regret about staying on with Dortmund and has insisted that this is the only place he wants to be.


"Of course, I have been thinking about the offers of these top clubs for more than a day, everything else would be a lie. But in the end, I always chose my club, and I still do not regret it to this day.


"Because I belong here. Because Dortmund is my club. And I really want to win the Bundesliga with this club. I want to be DFB Pokal winner again. I want to be in the Champions League final again. Knowing that you have three, four good years, every year you try to get the most out of it," the German concluded.
