Borussia Monchengladbach star Marcus Thuram has delivered an update on his future amid persistent rumors linking him with Barcelona and Manchester City
Thuram has been nothing short of outstanding for Borussia Monchengladbach since completing his €12million move from Guingamp in 2019.
It’s been one hell of a season for the 23-year-old so far. A stunning beginning of the season for the French forward includes an array of magical moments. He has already racked up four goals and six assists in all competitions.
Thuram’s blistering showings in the Bundesliga and the Champions League have brought him under the spotlight. As such, several of Europe’s top clubs have already taken an interest in the prolific forward.
Juventus and Barcelona hold a long-term admiration for the son of legendary Lilian Thuram. But, Manchester City have recently joined the race, determined to outfox a stiff competition for the France international.
Although no further confirmations have arrived as of yet, there’s a genuine feeling the Gladbach standout performer could be on his way out of the Borussia-Park next summer.

However, the player is at the moment hell-bent on continue delivering for Monchengladbach. After hitting the net in his team’s 4-1 thumping of Schalke 04 last weekend, Thuram has reiterated his desire to maintain his high level of performances for the German side.
“I am currently fully, 100 percent, concentrating on Borussia, and I am very happy to be here. I have also not spoken to any other club,” Thuram told German news outlet Kicker.
“Borussia has enabled me to take many career steps. I play the Champions League and have made the leap into the national team.
“In Gladbach, I not only grew as a player, but also as a person, and have developed further.
“Borussia was the best choice for my career.”
Thuram has also broken into the France national team, making two appearances in the UEFA Nations League under Didier Deschamps.
