Inter officially announced the signing of French forward Marcus Thuram on a Bosman deal on Saturday afternoon. Per the club’s website, the former Borussia Monchengladbach man has penned a five-year contract that will keep him at Giuseppe Meazza until 2028.
The deal signing was a formality as Thuram underwent his medical earlier this week after ditching Milan to join at the 11th hour. The 25-year-old seemed a step away from linking up with Stefano Pioli’s side after cutting short his four-year career at Gladbach.
Ha was expected to add to an ever-growing French contingent at Milan but eventually opted for the Nerazzurri shirt. Thuram should replace Edin Dzeko, who left Inter upon the expiry of his contract. With the club still unable to secure another loan deal for Romelu Lukaku, the Frenchman may partner up with Lautaro Martinez from the get-go.
As the latest son to follow the path of their famous fathers who plied their trade in Serie A, Thuram moves to Inter with high expectations. During four years in the Bundesliga, he tallied 114 appearances for Gladbach, netting 34 goals and chipping in with 22 assists.
Last season, he enjoyed his most prolific Bundesliga campaign at Borussia-Park, scoring 13 goals and adding six assists. But his overall performance goes far beyond just the numbers. His versatility, speed, and tricky feet could make him an invaluable asset fo Inter boss Simone Inzaghi.
Therefore, Thuram comes to the club with a distinguished pedigree.
