Marco Reus and Mats Hummels’ contracts at Borussia Dortmund expire next summer. The situation with the BVB captain is said to be a little more complicated than with the 2014 world champion.
As the sports picture reported, Reus, who is said to have recently complained about a lack of appreciation, is now in talks with the BVB managers around sports director Sebastian Kehl.
According to the report, the first thing to do is the contract period for the new working paper that is being sought. Reus wants to play at a high level for at least two more years, and a role in the club after the active career is also an issue for both sides.
Borussia would also like to extend, but at the same time reduce the salary of the 33-year-old, which is currently said to be 12 million euros per year. Instead, higher performance bonuses should be anchored in the contract.
If the attacking midfielder, who returned to BVB from Borussia Mönchengladbach in 2012, accepts the reduction in his basic salary, an agreement can be reached sports picture more likely than a breakup.
BVB: Situation with Mats Hummels more relaxed?
At Hummels, the BVB side is more relaxed, the report goes on to say. The 34-year-old has already had a detailed discussion with Managing Director Hans-Joachim Watzke.
It has emerged that the centre-back would probably agree to a reduction in his salary, which is said to be €10m a year.
Rather, Hummels must first be clear about how long he wants to continue his career at all.
