Thuram would be a huge bargain on a free transfer
Manchester United are in the race to sign Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram on a free transfer this summer, according to Calciomercato.
However, he is also capable of operating from the left wing. In our view, he could be seen as a potential replacement for the injury-plagued Anthony Martial.
The Frenchman has had a superb season for Monchengladbach, registering 13 goals and four assists from just 21 appearances in all competitions.
He is likely to leave the Bundesliga outfit when his contract expires in June and Calciomercato claim that United are one of the clubs interested.
The Red Devils, however, could face stiff competition from the Premier League with Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool also in the mix.
The player has been linked with a number of Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Arsenal. According to a report from Fichajes, Manchester United have now entered the race to sign the striker.
Erik ten Hag wants to add more depth to his attack and the likes of Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen have been linked with a move to Old Trafford.
However, the Red Devils believe that Marcus Thuram would be a cheaper alternative and the Frenchman could be signed for a reasonable outlay. The 25-year-old would be a free agent in the summer and Manchester United could look to snap him up.
The attacker has been in fine form this season scoring 14 goals and picking up 4 assists along the way.
The 25-year-old World Cup finalist is entering his peak years and he could prove to be a quality addition to the Manchester United attack stop The Frenchman can operate anywhere across the front three and his versatility will be an added bonus.
He has proven himself in the Bundesliga and the opportunity to join a top Premier League club could be an attractive option for him.
Manchester United are well positioned to return to the Champions League next season and they will be an attractive option for most players.
Ten Hag has transformed the Red Devils since his arrival and Manchester United can certainly compete for major trophies next season with the right additions. Thuram could prove to be a very useful addition if Manchester United fail to lure the likes of Kane or Osimhen.
