I spoke highly of him about a year ago. At the time we could've bought him for 20-25 millions. Our genius management prefered injured Gosens for the same amount of money.Wish we could sign Gakpo
The Nerazzurri met with Thuram’s representatives in Qatar to sound out the possibility of getting an agreement done early.
However, the 25-year-old’s representatives informed the Nerazzurri that Thuram plans to see out the rest of the current season at Gladbach and then make a decision about his future in the summer.
Inter had been considering a move for Thuram as early as January for a fee, in order to beat out the competition from Bayern Munich and teams in the Premier League in particular.
L’Equipe report that an unnamed Premier League heavy hitter have Thuram on their radar for next summer. Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Marseille, and Aston Villa are serious candidates in the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram.
“Thuram is likely to stay in Germany. I’ll say Bayern or Borussia Dortmund, because they pay much more in wages there.” - Italian journalist Ivan Zazzroni
“Inter don’t have a euro to spend, I’m sure they don’t have the financial strength to offer a contract to Thuram and his agent that’s better than what he could get from teams in England or Germany” Zazzaroni added.
Italian agent Oscar Damiani feels that it would be strange to see a player of Marcus Thuram’s quality move on a free transfer, but that this would represent a great chance for a team like Inter.
ByeSportMediaset reported that the German champions have offered Thuram a deal worth €7 million net per season, compared to the €4 million net per season put forward by the Nerazzurri.
