Marcus Thuram’s wish came true in the first game. Although the striker was substituted on for match winner Olivier Giroud shortly before the end against Australia, nobody is taking his World Cup away from him. And the 25-year-old knows very well that the market value increases with every additional minute played.
Inter Milan’s advance was doomed to fail from the start. On site in Doha, the Nerazzurri wanted to bag a winter change for the native Italian. As the ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ reports, the answer from the son of world and European champion Lilian Thuram was clear: a transfer in January is not an option.
Inter against Bayern without a chance
Inter are pushing the pace for good reason. The Milanese firmly believe that Bayern will make an attempt to bring Thuram on board in the summer. And at the traditional Italian club, they are aware that they cannot keep up with the German record champions.
Borussia Mönchengladbach would probably be willing to discuss a transfer fee of ten million euros. But regardless of possible Bayern interest, Thuram sees much more attractive options in the summer. This and probably also the prospect of the obligatory earnest money clearly speak for another half-year Borussia Mönchengladbach.
