Borussia Dortmund icon Marco Reus, who has been with BVB through thick and thin, has recently announced his departure from the German club at the end of the season. Reus spent 12 years at the Signal Iduna Park and has decided to leave the club as a free agent as his contract is set to expire in June 2024.

Reus is only behind Adi Preißler in Dortmund's all-time leading goalscorers list as he has scored 168 goals and 128 assists across all competitions. Earlier reports suggested that Reus has an unpleasant relationship with BVB coach Edin Terzic due to his lack of playing time. The 34-year-old midfielder last started a game for Dortmund on March 17 during a 3-1 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt.

Marco Reus won two German Cups in 2020-21, and 2016-17 and three German Super Cups in 2019-20, 2014-15, and 2013-14 with Dortmund. The 1996-97 Champions League winners took to their official X handle and shared a video message from Marco Reus. Dortmund captioned the post, "A message from Marco Reus."

After his announcement, speculations have been made over Marco Reus' future and whether he will return to  Borussia Mönchengladbach  or the German midfielder would leave the Bundesliga to play in the USA.

According to a report from Footballtransfers, Reus has no intention of retiring from football, but rather taking on a new adventure, with a potential move to the Major League Soccer (MLS). Dortmund defeated Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League 2023-24 semi-final last week and will travel to Parc des Princes for the second leg on Tuesday night.
