Metzelder: Why Reus must choose Real Madrid over Barcelona...

Former Germany international Christoph Metzelder says Borussia Dortmund midfielder Marco Reus should join Real Madrid.

Reus is being linked with Real and Barcelona.

But Metzelder says: "If Reus had to choose between Real Madrid or Barcelona, I think Real would be the easier choice.

"Real Madrid is a more global club than Barcelona. Barcelona means Catalonia. They're more regional and insular and prefer to focus on their own youth products."

He added: "The truth is that there is not much room in Madrid's attack, they have many options. But if there is a club that can accommodate a player like Reus, it is Madrid."

Metzelder, 34, is currently playing amateur football with TuS Haltern.
