Reus (ankle) has rejected a contract extension offer from Borussia Dortmund, as he continues to eye a move away from the club, Bild reports.

Reus was headed to be one of the biggest signings of the summer until he suffered a devastating ankle injury in June that kept him from participating in the World Cup. He has been linked to Manchester United for quite awhile, but two other big clubs are lurking: Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Reus, who suffered ligament damage in his ankle back in June while playing for Germany, returned to light training with Borussia Dortmund on Thursday, Bundesliga.com reports.

The injury cost Reus a spot with Germany at the World Cup, while also possibly keeping him from a high-profile transfer this summer. He is expected to be out until September, although it wouldn't be surprising if he was limited for the first month.

Reus suffered an ankle injury Friday against Armenia and an MRI revealed a potential ligament tear, which would rule him out of the World Cup, BILD Sport reports.

While the Germans are relatively deep in the midfield, losing Reus would be a huge blow to their title chances. He will likely undergo further testing, but it's entirely possible that he will not play in Brazil.

Reus finished the 2013-14 Bundesliga season with 16 goals and 13 assists, the latter of which led the league.

Reus has been heavily linked to Manchester United for quite some time, although he recently speculated that he will most likely stay with Dortmund. He does have a 35 million release clause in his contract, although it is unclear if Man U would be willing to go that deep in the coffers with so many other needs to fill.
