Speaking to Sport1, Borussia Mönchengladbach sporting director Roland Virkus has confirmed that Marcus Thuram will leave the club in the summer on a free transfer.
When asked about the future of Thuram, Virkus said: “We stretched at Marcus Thuram. We’ll have to accept that when there are bigger clubs Marcus might go to.” Thuram has been linked with a host of clubs including Bayern Munich, Inter Milan and Manchester United.
Thuram joined Gladbach in 2019 from Guingamp in France for €9m and has gone on to make 124 appearances and score 42 times for Gladbach.
The 25-year-old is already having his best goalscoring season for Gladbach scoring 11 times in the league which puts him third in the goalscoring chart. His form in the first half of the season earned him a late call-up to the France World Cup squad where he played a key role in France’s comeback in the final against Argentina.
Thuram scored his first goal of the new year in Gladbach’s 3-2 win against Bayern Munich ending his four-game goal drought.
