Bayern Munich make ‘lucrative’ offer for Newcastle United ‘target’

Bayern Munich are reportedly lining up a ‘lucrative’ offer to Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram to tempt him to stay in the Bundesliga. Thuram, son of former France defender Lilian, could leave his current side on a free transfer this summer and has admirers across the continent.

Liverpool, Arsenal and Newcastle have all been linked with the France international, however, it appears that Bayern have made the first move for the in-form 25 year old and could look to negotiate a cut price deal for the Frenchman when the transfer window opens next month. Monchengladbach manager Oliver Neuville has admitted that it will be difficult for his club to convince Thuram to sign another deal at the club.

“He’s having an amazing season.” He told Radio Sportiva. “He’s scored a lot of goals. I think it will be difficult for him to stay at Gladbach.

“If he continues to score so many goals, it’s certain he’ll have many offers from Italy, Spain and England. We must also be a little realistic.

“I hope he will still be here for a long time in Monchengladbach. But now he’s been called up by French for the World Cup, it will be difficult for him to extend. I hope (he stays). But the chances are slim.”

Thuram has scored 10 goals in just 15 Bundesliga appearances this season.
