Manchester United: Marcus Thuram dreams of Old Trafford move

Manchester United: Marcus Thuram dreams of Old Trafford move -Manchester United News

Borussia Monchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram wants to join a dream club this month, with Manchester United one of four options named.

The Lowdown: Contact made

The Red Devils appear to be on the search for a new forward this month after parting ways with Cristiano Ronaldo and missing out on Cody Gakpo to Liverpool.

Thuram, labelled ‘a little crazy’ by former team-mate Denis Zakaria, appears to be on the Glazers’ radar, with contact reportedly already made with the Frenchman’s representatives.

The 25-year-old is out of contract with the Bundesliga side later this year, and a further transfer update has emerged.

The Latest: Dream club

Sports Witness relayed an update from German outlet BILD regarding Thuram in the last 48 hours.

They said that the forward has two wishes, one of which being that he completes a transfer away from Monchengladbach this month. The other is he joins a dream club, with Manchester United named alongside Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Paris Saint-Germain.

Thuram isn’t interested in joining Aston Villa or Newcastle United, with Monchengladbach ‘rethinking’ the situation.

The Verdict: Get it done

Thuram is primarily a centre-forward but can also play out wide so would give Erik ten Hag another high-quality option in the final third.

Cristiano Ronaldo of Manchester United

MUFC fans, do you remember what year Cristiano Ronaldo signed the first time?

He’s scored ten goals in 15 Bundesliga games and is valued at €32m by Transfermarkt, although you’d like to think a potential transfer fee could be lower due to his contract situation.

United could even now look to strike pre-contract agreement terms with the player ahead of a free transfer in the summer, so it could be wise to move fast in order to avoid more disappointment.
