Inter Milan have scheduled the medicals for Marcus Thuram to complete his move from Borussia Monchengladbach for this Monday.
This according to Italian news outlet Gazzetta.it, who report that lawyers and agents are drawing up contracts for the 25-year-old over this weekend, and that he should have his medical exams at the very start of the upcoming weekend.
Barring late surprises, Inter have won the race to sign Thuram.
Inter’s pursuit of Gladbach striker Thuram has been a long and winding one.
The Nerazzurri had reportedly been very close to signing the Frenchman already in 2021. However, a knee injury to the player prompted them to move on to other targets, signing Joaquin Correa from Lazio instead.
However, Thuram’s availability on a free transfer this summer has reignited their interest.
The Frenchman’s contract with Gladbach runs out at the end of the current month. Gladbach’s Sporting Director Roland Virkus made clear long ago that the player has no intention of signing a new deal.
Inter Milan To Hold Medicals For Marcus Thuram At Start Of Week
Inter have been pursuing Thuram as a summer free transfer opportunity. The Nerazzurri have been in talks with the Thuram‘s representatives since the World Cup about a potential summer move.
However, the player has instead accepted an offer from Inter.
Now, only the final details remain before the Nerazzurri can make the French international’s arrival official. Since he is joining on a free transfer, Gladbach are not involved in the process.
This weekend, Thuram’s new contract will be finalized.
Then, at the start of next week, the Frenchman will have his medicals, and should then become an Inter player.
