The ‘Gladbach forward was injured against Bayer Leverkusen. He will be out for no less than two months
It wasn’t meant to be. Marcus Thuram hoped for it, but he will not be the new Inter forward. The Frenchman of Borussia Moenchengladbach broke his knee ligaments in the last round of the championship. He will be out for no less than two months. Consequently, the negotiation with the Nerazzurri is skipped. The Fohlen asked for at least 30 million to sell him, the deal could have been closed in the early days of this week also because the player had expressed his desire to go and play in Italy.
Born in Parma, when his father Lilian played with the Gialloblù, Marcus was a Milan fan as a child. “Perhaps to provoke, in a playful way, my father who had moved to Juventus – he told the Gazzetta a few months ago -. I loved Sheva and Crespo.” From an early age, therefore, Thuram has always dreamed of playing at San Siro. He is very attached to Italy, because it is a country that he considers important not only in his life, but also in that of his father. Italy was therefore fundamental for the serenity that has always been experienced in the Thuram home. The opportunity to replace Lukaku at Inter also stimulated him particularly. “I have always had a great admiration for Lukaku. I followed him when he was very young, for me he has always been a source of inspiration. I hope to become stronger than him, I work every day to become one of the best in the world”. The clash with Tah in Gladbach-Leverkusen, however, knocked him out and put an end to the negotiation with Inter. It wasn’t meant to be.
