“Reus Should Go To Madrid Not Barca”

Former Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund defender, Christoph Metzelder, has advised Marco Reus to join Real Madrid instead of Barcelona.

Read about what happened in Dortmund’s last match against Wolfsburg.

The 34-year-old, who spent seven years at Dortmund, before moving to Real Madrid for three seasons believes that Real Madrid have a bigger global appeal and, for that reason, Reus would be able to secure his status as a star footballer.

“If Reus had to choose between Real Madrid or Barcelona, I think Real would be the easier choice,” the former German international told AS.

“Real Madrid is a more global club than Barcelona. Barcelona means Catalonia. They’re more regional and insular and prefer to focus on their own youth products.”

Metzelder went on to acknowledge that it is not easy to break into Real Madrid’s first team, but concluded that Real Madrid will be able to accommodate Reus.

“The truth is that there is not much room in Madrid’s attack, they have many options.

“But if there is a club that can accommodate a player like Reus, it is Madrid”, he added.

Marco Reus is currently one of the most sought after players in Europe. His contract is set to expire in 2017 and he doesn’t appear to be interested in renewing his deal with the German team.
