Chelsea and Man Utd to swoop for Marcus Thuram?
Chelsea and Manchester United could go head-to-head to sign Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram this summer.
The 25-year-old has amassed 13 goals and four assists for Gladbach this campaign and plans to see out the season with them.
With his contract expiring in June, he would be a free-agent. Thuram is prepared to stay patient to secure a big-club move.
Chelsea have been hot on the trail of him in recent weeks, but they are set to face competition from United as well as Bayern Munich.
Bayern would provide Thuram with the opportunity to stay put in Germany while having the guarantee of winning trophies in future.
However, there are claims that the Frenchman wants to play in the Premier League which should hand a boost to Chelsea and United.
Aside from the duo, Liverpool and Arsenal have also been credited with an interest in signing Thuram, who was part of France's World Cup squad.
Thuram grabbed an assist in the World Cup final in November last year.
