Manchester United transfer target available for just 10m this January

The Red Devils are on the hunt for striker reinforcements.


Manchester United could snag Borussia Monchengladbach and France forward Marcus Thuram for just 12m euros (£10m) this January as the German side look to extract a fee for their attacker.

Thuram is out of contract in 2023, and has shown no interest in renewing his deal with the Bundesliga outfit, meaning that he could leave for free in the summer, leaving Gladbach with one last chance to raise a fee for the Frenchman.

And, as per Bild, they will listen to offers as low as 12m euros for their talent, which would represent a 3m euros profit from when they signed him in 2019.

The 25-year-old enjoyed strong form before the World Cup break, grabbing 10 goals and three assists in 15 Bundesliga outings, helping Monchengladbach to eighth place heading into the break for the tournament in Qatar.

And, following injury to Karim Benzema, the forward was also added to Didier Deschamps’ squad, and has gone on to make four appearances at the tournament, grabbing an assist in the process as he has helped Les Blues to a second consecutive final.

The Red Devils remain on the hunt for a striker solution following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo, and have been linked with a host of attackers including the likes of Joao Felix, Memphis Depay and Cody Gakpo.

Thuram is reportedly being considered as a more cost-effective option though, while he is able to play on either flank or as a lone striker.

However, there is expected to be a serious battle for his services, with Arsenal, Aston Villa and Newcastle all also interested in the services of the 25-year-old as well as several clubs across Europe.
