PSG have vigorously entered the fray to sign Marcus Thuram, who has long been on Inter’s radar, although there hasn’t been a ton of momentum lately. Milan are reportedly eyeing the forward as well, SportMediaset informs.
While the Ligue 1 giants could outbid the rivals on his wages, the striker has some reservations. He’d like to join a side where he would have a starring role ahead of the 2024 European Championship. He turned down Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in January for such reason. He was rumored to be very close to Bayern Munich in previous months, but that destination lost pace.
Per RMC Sport, PSG and Inter are the two leading candidates for Thuram as of now. On the other hand, the French champions plot to add one further elite striker to their offensive corps. The 25-year-old will take his time to weigh his options.
The attacker has recently been linked to Milan, which will need new weapons since Brahim Diaz is set to go back to Real Madrid. In addition, they need a younger marksman and could upgrade on the right flank. He has tallied 16 goals and 7 assists in 36 appearances last season.
Our Take on Thuram
If he cares more about the fit and playing time than money, it could be a while before he decides. His role at Inter would hinge on whether they’ll retain Romelu Lukaku and Edin Dzeko. Milan could surely use him, but Olivier Giroud isn’t going anywhere. As presently constructed, PSG would be a swell choice, but their plans are always lofty.
