Borussia Monchengladbach director Max Eberl has said they would be ‘extremely reluctant’ to sell Marcus Thuram. According to the director, though they may have to sell him, Gladbach will concede, not gladly, to Thuram’s football transfer.
The 24-year-old son of former Parma and Juventus defender Lilian Thuram has emerged as a new major target for Inter
The Scudetto winners are unwilling to pay €30 million plus bonuses for Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata (the football news).
Instead, under new coach Simone Inzaghi, they are looking for more creative, quick, and wide players. They are looking for such versatile players as can vary their style of play.
Gladbach Will Concede, Not Gladly, to Thuram’s Football Transfer
Borussia Monchengladbach may have to sell Marcus Thuram to Inter this summer transfer window, but they won’t do so readily.
Inter haven’t made a formal offer for Marcus Thuram, but per Eberl, Gladbach will sell him with a ‘heavy heart.’
“I can’t exclude anything until the transfer window shuts, so it’s all speculation so far,” Eberl told reporters in Germany.
“The fact is we would be extremely reluctant to lose Marcus, so we’d do it with a heavy heart.”
If we believe Sky Sport Italia, his agent Mino Raiola is in talks with Inter about a possible deal.
Raiola, one of the “top” football agents, may arrange for France international Thuram to play at San Siro this season.
“I have a good rapport with Mino Raiola. Marcus can score even more goals than he did last season,” continued Gladbach chief Max Eberl.
“He has incredible potential, power, and dynamism, so Thuram can do much more. Doing it at Gladbach is certainly a good move for him.”
Thuram has scored 25 goals and made 21 assists in 80 games for ‘Die Fohlen’. Thus, his move, worth €9 million, to Gladbach from Guingamp in 2019 has since been proved to be a success.
