Manchester United are preparing to set up a swap deal for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus. The People says David Moyes will attempt to land Reus this summer by ­using Shinji Kagawa as a ­makeweight in a player-plus-cash swap.

Manchester United boss Moyes will cut short the Japan star's stay by offering him a return to his old club Borussia Dortmund in the hope of tempting the Germans to let 24-year-old Reus leave for the Old Trafford giants.

Reus has been on United's radar for a while and the club failed in a move for him in January. Now, Moyes hopes to have more luck by ­offering Kagawa.
