On Tuesday at the last European Championship test of the French, Marcus Thuram (23) was only allowed to watch. The striker was not in the 23-man squad of the “Equipe Tricolore” against Bulgaria (3-0). Even if he couldn’t increase his market value again, Thuram (has a contract with Borussia until 2023) is still on the shopping list of some European top clubs. And a club from the English Premier League is particularly keen on him …
Tottenham is chasing Thuram!
The well-informed French medium “RMC Sport” has already reported on concrete negotiations between the “Spurs” and Thuram advisor Mino Raiola (53).
And Gladbach suddenly beckons a record revenue!
Because last week manager Max Eberl (47) revealed exclusively in BILD that the Frenchman’s exit clause expired at the end of May: “As of now, there is no longer any player with us who has an exit clause.”
Means that Borussia can now freely negotiate a possible transfer. And that Thuram is not unsaleable even without an exit clause. Eberl: “We live in a time when nothing can be excluded.”
As an example, the manager explained in the BILD interview that the club would of course have to think about a transfer if there was a 40 million offer for Jonas Hofmann (28) or Alassane Plea (28).
With Thuram, who is five years younger, Eberl would only be weak if the sum was even higher!
This could make Thuram the most expensive sale in Gladbach history. So far, that was the transfer of Granit Xhaka (28) to Arsenal in 2016, which poured 43 million euros into the cash register (see list). And Eberl would have a lot of money available to bag one or two transfers for the new coach Adi Hütter (51) …
