AC Milan Edges Out PSG in Race for Marcus Thuram’s Signature
In a stunning turn of events, AC Milan is on the verge of securing a major victory in the transfer market with the highly sought-after striker, Marcus Thuram, reportedly favoring a move to the legendary Italian giants.
This Frenchman, whose contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach is set to expire this month, has become one of the most coveted free agents in the football world.
Reports suggest that AC Milan has made an enticing offer to Thuram, including an attractive salary package believed to be around €5.5 million per year, complemented by additional performance-related bonuses.
Marcus Thuram will NOT join PSG — it’s confirmed as per L’Équipe. ⛔️🇫🇷
Understand Thuram is tempted by the new improved proposal from AC Milan — decision is to leave PSG talks. 🔴⚫️
Communication sent in the afternoon: talks with PSG are over.
This generous proposition seems to have swayed Thuram, leading him to reject an opportunity to join Paris Saint-Germain (PSG), who were also vying for his signature. Consequently, AC Milan has gained a significant advantage in the race for the striker’s services.
Head coach Stefano Pioli played a pivotal role in persuading Thuram by assuring him of his crucial role within the squad.
This assurance carried significant weight in the player’s decision-making process. Although PSG expressed genuine interest in acquiring Thuram, they were unable to guarantee him a central role, thereby giving AC Milan the upper hand.
Thuram showcased his exceptional goal-scoring abilities during the previous season, finding the back of the net 13 times and providing six assists in 30 Bundesliga appearances.
With Thuram’s final decision expected to be announced in the coming days, AC Milan fans are eagerly anticipating the arrival of this prolific goal scorer to their ranks.
The club’s supporters have reason to believe that their team will soon be celebrating the addition of a remarkable talent to their already formidable squad.
