Manchester United are watching Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Marco Reus.

The 21 year-old dynamo has attracted United scouts to Gladbach games in recent months.

Though no bid is imminent, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has received glowing reports on Reus and told his scouts to keep tabs on him for the remainder of the season.

A Germany U21 international, Reus came through the ranks at Borussia Dortmund before dropping out of the Bundesliga to kickoff his pro career with Rot Weiss Ahlen.

The midfielder has been with Gladbach for the past two seasons.
