Marcus Thuram is likely to leave Borussia Monchengladbach at the conclusion of the season on a free transfer. Along with his pending decision, Chelsea and Inter reportedly showing interest.
The French international’s contract ends at the end of June. Gladbach sports director Roland Virkus made it clear Sunday that Gladbach stand to lose him.
Thuram has apparently drawn attention from a number of great teams in Europe. Inter supposedly leading the charge alongside Chelsea and Gladbach’s Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.
Only five players in Germany’s top flight have more goal involvements this season than the 25-year-old. He has 11 goals and three assists in totals.
Virkus seemed to accept that Gladbach’s efforts to retain the talented Lilian Thuram’s son were going to fail.
He stated: “Marcus Thuram helped us stretch.We have to embrace the fact that Marcus may go to larger teams.”
I’m not going to hide it, but the fact that players will leave us for free is not a favorable situation, according to Virkus.
Gladbach is currently seventh in the Bundesliga after defeating Bayern on Saturday, 3-2, with 10 men thanks to a goal by Thuram.
