Bayern Munich Leading Race for Moenchengladbach Ace

Inter covet Marcus Thuram, but Bayern Munich jumped ahead of the competition with a very lucrative offer to sign him on a free transfer at the end of the season. The Borussia Moenchengladbach star hasn’t accepted it yet, potentially leaving the door open to the other contenders.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Bavarians have tendered a five-year contract with €6M annual wages. They are targeting him to fill the void opened by the departure of Robert Lewandowski, which they didn’t address last summer.

It’ll be tough for Inter and other sides to match the proposal by Bayern Munich for Thuram. The Nerazzurri and Atletico Madrid can put €4M per year on the table. Aston Villa and Newcastle have the means for larger contracts but not the same aura as the German giants.

The Frenchman plans to take his time to think it over. He’s set to receive further wealthy bids. A January departure doesn’t appear to be in the cards. La Beneamata maintains some hope because he would have gladly joined them two years ago. However, he injured his knee as the two sides were about to reach agreement. In addition, Simone Inzaghi swayed the club to sign Joaquin Correa instead.

Our Take on Thuram, Bayern Munich, and Inter

If the reports are true, the Nerazzurri have slim chances to emerge victorious even though they did their homework early and reportedly already met with his entourage in Qatar. If the Bavarians really want to onboard him, chances are they will manage considering their resources and pull factor toward Bundesliga players.
