If there's any Barcelona fan out there who still wants the club to sign Borussia Dortmund star Marco Reus, you better forget it.

Although the reports linking Reus to the Catalan giants this summer were minimal, they still popped up here and there. As Barça shifted its attention to Paul Pogba, Juventus were thrown in the Reus mix, as the German superstar was heavily linked with a move to Italy for several weeks.

After all, Marco is staying in Dortmund, and even signed a contract extension with Die Schwarzgelben, keeping the attacking midfielder in the club until 2019. And his agent, Volker Struth, rather confirmed Reus' decision to stick around and play three or four more seasons with his childhood club in an interview this week.

"We hear and read every single rumor regarding Marco's future. We can absolutely say that the player is incredibly happy with how things are developing at Dortmund. We appreciate and feel flattered by the interest and offers from all teams, but it's safe to say Marco is staying at Borussia Dortmund."

So there you go. If you still expected a super "BREAKING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!" report saying that Reus is joining the Blaugrana, maybe it's time to think about another target.
