Man Utd transfer boost as France World Cup star Marcus Thuram is available for just £9.6m to replace Cristiano Ronaldo
MANCHESTER UNITED are reportedly looking to sign Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram during the January transfer window.
The Red Devils have been seeking a new striker since Erik ten Hag took over in May.
Thuram has been linked with a move to Man UtdRex
And with the January window looming, they may have finally found their man.
According to Sport Bild, Man Utd have expressed an interest in signing Thuram, 25, from Borussia Monchengladbach.
The Bundesliga side are currently open to selling the striker for just £9.6million as his contract expires in June.
United believe he could be the ideal candidate to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who sensationally left the club last month.
Thuram has made four appearances so far for France in this year’s World Cup, but he is yet to get on the scoresheet.
Despite his lack of goals for France, the striker is currently one of the Bundesliga’s top scorers with 10 goals in 15 games for Borussia Monchengladbach this season.
His impressive form has attracted interest from various Premier League clubs including Newcastle, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham as well as Man Utd.
The Red Devils are also keeping tabs on Juventus striker Dusan Vlahovic, who is expected to leave Turin next month despite joining the club earlier this year.

The attacker has been pushing for a move away from Atletico Madrid for the past month, so a move to Old Trafford could be on the cards.
