France international forward Marcus Thuram has been described as ‘open’ to a move to Manchester United.

There is speculation that United are in for Thuram, who is in the final few months of his contract at Borussia Moenchengladbach.

SportBild reported a fortnight ago that United are keen and rumours have persisted since, with the January transfer window now open.

Thuram starred at the World Cup for France, providing an assist for Kylian Mbappe in the final.

Thuram ‘open to move’

United’s options up front are limited due to lack of funds, BBC Sport report, and Thuram’s contract situation at ‘Gladbach makes him an intriguing target.

Now, Bundesliga expert Ronan Murphy claims Marcus Thuram would be open to a move, when quizzed about interest from Manchester United.

The main reports are coming from Spanish publications at the moment, but there’s talk in Germany that an approach has been made. Thuram would be open to the move, and Gladbach willing to sell this month for somewhere between €10m and €12m.

While there is no concrete approach from United, if there was, it sounds like the Frenchman would be interested. He recently reached out to praise Red Devils striker Anthony Martial after his goal in the win over Nottingham Forest.

This season Thuram has struck 10 goals in 15 Bundesliga games after bouncing back from an injury-hit 2021/22.

A move for the forward would be sensible given United’s price range. But at this early stage of the transfer window, there may be other options the club wish to also explore.
