Premier League clubs Manchester United and Chelsea will battle it out with Barcelona for the signature of Marcus Thuram.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Manchester United and Chelsea are interested Marcus Thuram. The Premier League clubs are set to battle it out with Spanish giants Barcelona, who have been keen on the Borussia Monchengladbach star for a while now.
Thuram’s contract at Borussia Monchengladbach ends in the summer. While the Bundesliga outfit were eager to pen an extension, they have failed to agree on a deal. The 25-year-old has decided to move on from the club in a Bosman move. He is looking for a bigger project elsewhere.
The France international will be a free agent in four months and will decide his future then. There is a lot of interest from across the globe for his services. Some of the biggest clubs have registered their interest in his services. And, his agent is looking for the best project for the Borussia forward.
The French striker has featured in 23 matches in the ongoing season. He has found the back of the net on 14 occasions and has four assists to his name. Thuram is in red-hot form. And the fact that he will be available for free has attracted a lot of attention.
Barcelona have been interested in his services for a while now. People at the Catalan club believe that will be a good fit in Xavi Hernandez’s system. The Barcelona boss will love to have him at his disposal as they look to push for the Champions League next season. His versatility will help the club, and they will have someone who could eventually replace Robert Lewandowski.
However, Barcelona will face competition from Chelsea as well as Manchester United. The Blues are looking for an out-and-out striker who can lead the line in the next season. They feel Thuram could be a good fit for the club. With Romelu Lukaku likely to be sold after returning from his loan spell at Inter Milan, Chelsea’s interest in the 25-year-old makes a lot of sense.
The Red Devils are also interested in Thuram’s services. Erik ten Hag is keen on signing a new striker in the summer. Wout Weghorst will return to his parent club after the end of the season and injuries have not been kind to Anthony Martial. As a result, pushing for the Borussia striker is a must for Manchester United.
It is going to be an interesting transfer tussle between Chelsea, Manchester United, and Barcelona. However, they are not the only clubs interested in him. Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, and Inter Milan also have their eyes on him.
