As reported by Kicker, Borussia Mönchengladbach forward Marcus Thuram has turned down a contract offer from PSG.
It’s been known for a long time that Thuram will be playing his football elsewhere next season. At one stage, PSG were leading the race to sign the French international. However, with interest from Milan, Thuram has turned down the opportunity to play in the French capital.
Other interested clubs include RB Leipzig who are hoping to sign the forward on a free transfer at the end of the month. However, it’s unlikely that the Saxons can hijack any potential deal.
Milan now appear to be the front-runners. They have offered Thuram around €5m per year without bonuses but nothing has been signed yet. The France international will also pocket more than €10m in signing fees.
As reported via our colleagues at Get Italian Football News, Les Bleus teammates Olivier Giroud, Mike Maignan and Theo Hernandez have also tried to convince him about joining Milan.
