Jose Mourinho says Chelsea have no interest in Marco Reus

The teams lining up for his signature drops by one.

Two and a half years ago, Marco Reus signed a five-year contract keeping him with Borussia Dortmund through the summer of 2017. That hasn't stopped t he media linking him with moves to other clubs nearly every single day. While Bayern Munich are included in that bunch, they are but one side among a handful.

However, if you are one that chooses to believe a man like Jose Mourinho, perhaps we can remove one club from his potential destinations.

So, Chelsea are not interested in signing Reus. That is, as I said, if you believe a man like Jose Mourinho. Our friends over at We Ain't Got No History seem to think this is some sort of subterfuge by their coach which wouldn't be all that surprising.

However, if we were to take Mourinho at his word here and assume that Reus is definitely leaving Borussia Dortmund in the near future, what are his logical destinations? The ones that are linked to him remain FC Bayern, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Arsenal.

Who will win the race for Reus's signature? (This, of course, still assumes that he's actually going to leave Dortmund which we actually don't know at this time.)
