The Dortmund stalwart confirmed he will leave the club after the conclusion of the ongoing campaign

Marco Reus is thinking about moving to the Major League Soccer (MLS) after leaving Borussia Dortmund as a free agent at the end of the season, reports suggest. Reus informed Samir Nasri on Canal+ about a possible move to Major League Soccer as negotiations are already underway.

On the last day of the season, Reus and the supporters will have one more opportunity to say farewell to one another at home against Darmstadt. What transpires in Paris on Tuesday, where Reus and his squad travel in the hopes of repeating what they accomplished in 2013 when he was nearing the conclusion of his first season at his hometown club, will determine a lot of the atmosphere of that final farewell.

He was different, and BVB were different. Eleven years ago, on a scorching Madrid night, we and the others—Robert Lewandowski, Mario Götze, Mats Hummels, Ilkay Gündogan, and others—danced in front of their supporters high in the Bernabéu, celebrating having defeated the team’s most famous club.

After surviving a near-death experience in 2005, this well-known historic club from industrial north-west Germany was prepared to introduce Echte Liebe (Real Love), their brand of charisma and atmosphere, to the public. With Reus leading the charge, this youthful and dynamic group was ready to give the planet a black-and-yellow makeover.

However, rather than serving as a basecamp for the ascent to greatness, Wembley 2013 proved to be the ultimate event as BVB lost to Bayern Munich.

For better or worse during the following years, Reus frequently served as Dortmund’s public face. “Reus and BVB are still much more outside of Germany than the perennial runners-up in the Bundesliga; they are now part of popular culture in the best sense of the word,” the legendary Stephan Uersfeld wrote for NTV in 2022.

Reus was identified globally with the team’s friendly demeanour, but in his hometown, he was associated with the group’s failure to perform well in crucial situations and the idea that players and clubs were prioritising appearances over performance.

Now he will have a chance to banish the ghost of the 2013 UCL final after his side the reach 2024 Champions League where they will either meet Bayern or Real Madrid.
