Manchester United could sign Marcus Thuram from Borussia Monchengladbach as Cristiano Ronaldo replacement in cut-price £10million deal in January window

December 19, 2022

Manchester United are keen on signing Marcus Thuram in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The Red Devils are likely to be in the market for a new forward following Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure from the club last month.

United are currently fifth in the Premier League table and will be keen to sign someone who will help them achieve top four this season.

And Erik ten Hag’s side are thought to be interested in Borussia Monchengladbach striker Thuram, according to BILD.

The Frenchman could leave the Bundesliga outfit for as little as £10million too, a deal that would be considered cheap in the modern market.

Thuram’s contract at the club expires in the summer, although United may be ready to sign him now.

He has netted 13 times in 17 appearances so far this season, with the 25-year-old certainly having an eye for goal.

Thuram was also included in France’s World Cup squad, coming off the bench in their final loss against Argentina.
