The agent of Borussia Dortmund forward Marco Reus was present at a “secret meeting” with Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag, according to Bild reporter Christian Falk.
The German journalist claims that discussions were held about Reus moving to Old Trafford on a free transfer at the end of the season:

With Reus within the final six months of his €12m a year (£202,000 a week) contract, he is allowed to hold face-to-face talks with foreign clubs, including United.
His representatives were pictured at Old Trafford during the Manchester derby last week, but there was no official confirmation that the German was in discussions with the Red Devils about a move.
Reus is now 33 years of age, so he isn’t exactly a spring chicken. His injury record doesn’t make for good reading either, having been sidelined for most of this season with a recurring ankle problem. It remains to be whether the player will end up sealing a move to Manchester.
