Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes is impressed with one of Borussia Dortmund’s most popular players.

Borussia Dortmund reached the Champions League quarter-finals with a win over PSV Eindhoven, with their reward being a draw against Atletico Madrid.

Manchester United loanee Jadon Sancho scored the goal to open the scoring in the second leg, with Dortmund winning 3-1 on aggregate.

Sancho was praised after the game in the German media, while pundits on TNT Sports reflected on how differently he played in comparison to his time at Manchester United.

Marco Reus is one of the best

Marco Reus will go down as a Borussia Dortmund legend, having been at the club his entire career.

Manchester United were linked with him when he was an emerging star at the German side, strongly linked with a swoop back in 2015, per ESPN.

Reus never gave an indication he was willing to leave and has remained at the club since. Injuries have prevented him from hitting the heights many expected, but at 34, he is still going strong, and scored Dortmund’s second goal in the win over PSV.

It was revealed earlier this year that Reus played a key role in tempting Jadon Sancho back to Dortmund, even raising the possibility of doing so last pre-season, before the winger had fallen out with Erik ten Hag.

United want to cash in on Sancho, and the chance to continue with Reus could help make his mind up to stick around.
