Marco Reus is determined to win the Champions League title with Borussia Dortmund in what will be his final game for the club.

After 12 incredible years with Borussia Dortmund, Marco Reus is set to leave the club at the end of the season. His final game in BVB colours will be against Real Madrid in the final of the UEFA Champions League.

This will be Borussia Dortmund's first CL final appearance since Reus' debut season with the club. And the 34 year old is keen to end his BVB career on a high. "I love being on the pitch. It's a childhood dream. Of course, I know that I don't have that many years left, so I try to enjoy being in the dressing room with the boys every day in training, but especially at the games. That's what I'll miss the most," Reus told Sky Sport following BVB's 3-0 defeat to Mainz 05.

"I'm happy with how things have worked out - now also with the final. The last game is a Champions League final, there's nothing better. Now we just have to crown it with a win."

Reus, who will leave Borussia Dortmund as the club's second-highest goalscorer of all time, has been linked with a move to the MLS in recent weeks. Reports have claimed that he has already held talks with St. Louis City SC, where former BVB teammate Roman Bürki also plays. But for Reus, the most important thing at the moment is the Champions League final.

"So far, I'm not wasting any thought on what comes next. Something will come, because I've said that I love being on the pitch. But we have this one big goal and we're really putting everything else aside for it."

Marco Reus will have his Borussia Dortmund farewell next weekend at the Westfalenstadion when they host SV Darmstadt in their final Bundesliga game of the season. Then the focus will turn to the UEFA Champions League final against Real Madrid.
