Marcus Thuram and the question of his future: It still seems to be completely open which jersey Tikus will wear from the coming season. While Gladbach wants to extend the reinvigorated striker, numerous Premier League clubs are watching his situation closely.
The contract of the 25-year-old Frenchman on the Lower Rhine expires next summer. In Gladbach they want to try everything to keep the attacker over 2023. In the talks about a contract extension, however, the foals' hands are tied financially. The most likely would be a contract extension with an exit clause - a similar procedure had recently been used with Hofmann and Plea.
With four goals and two assists in the first eight Bundesliga games 22/23, Thuram started the new round strongly. Under coach Daniel Farke, Tikus has a permanent place on the nine and is showing significantly better performances there again. The coach's confidence and his significantly improved fitness are said to be the main reasons for Thuram's resurgence.
An upswing that foal sports director Roland Virkus follows with mixed feelings. Thuram's good performances finally bring him into the spotlight of other clubs. All the more because he would be available for free next summer - as of now.
Legendary coach Klaus Toppmöller even brought the 25-year-old into play as an option at FC Bayern. Last season there seemed to be a lot to indicate a move to Italy to Inter. In the meantime, however, the race should be completely open again. If Thuram decides to change next summer, according to 90min information, many clubs from the Premier League in particular are ready.
Leicester City, Wolves, Everton, Fulham and Crystal Palace are all closely following Thuram's situation. All of them are not absolute top clubs on the island, but are known to have a fat wallet.
Financially Gladbach will hardly be able to keep up. The biggest bargaining chip for the foals is probably trainer Daniel Farke on the one hand, and the sporting perspective on the other. Despite the hefty bankruptcy in Bremen last Saturday, Gladbach seems quite capable of returning to international business this season. Something that the aforementioned clubs from England tend not to be able to lure with.
