Manchester United monitoring Marcus Thuram’s situation

Manchester United have been linked with a move for Marcus Thuram, who is reportedly open to a move from Borussia Monchengladbach.

The French star is ‘open’ to a transfer to Manchester United, according to football journalist Ronan Murphy, who cited reports from Germany on Twitter.

Murphy tweeted: “The main reports are coming from Spanish publications at the moment, but there’s talk in Germany that an approach has been made. Thuram would be open to the move, and Gladbach willing to sell this month for somewhere between €10m and €12m.”

Another journalist renowned for transfer news is Ben Jacobs. In his latest column for Caught Offside, he suggests United making a move for Thuram is more likely in the summer.

“Marcus Thuram is another name creeping into the conversation with Manchester United. I know that prior to the World Cup they were scouting him and keeping an eye on his progress, so we’ll see how that develops. It could be a more realistic move in the summer as he’ll be out of contract at the end of the season as things stand. United have been monitoring that situation, and it helps that he’s having a very strong season at the moment, with 13 goals in 17 games, and is someone who can play centrally or out wide.”

Manchester United have been linked with a host of forward players this month, but any incomings in January are likely to be on loan.
