France international Marcus Thuram has a release clause worth €95 million in his five-year deal with Inter Milan.

This according to Italian news outlet, who reveal that the Nerazzurri have agreed the large release clause with the 25-year-old as a clear message that they see him as an important and highly-valued part of the project moving forward.

Inter have landed their man. Yesterday, the Nerazzurri officially announced that Thuram had signed a five-year contract, on a free transfer after his deal with Borussia Monchengladbach had run out.

The Gazzetta confirm reports about the wages that the player will earn. Former Guingamp and Sochaux star Thuram will receive wages of €6 million net per season.

This will cost Inter around €7.7 million gross per season. The reason for this is that the Nerazzurri benefit from the tax benefits of the Growth Decree in their payment of the Frenchman’s wages.

Marcus Thuram Has Steep Release Clause In His Inter Milan Contract

Inter may have signed Thuram for nothing. However, any club that signs the striker from Inter will not be able to do so for cheap, the Gazzetta reveals.

The Nerazzurri have put a release clause of €95 million in Thuram’s five-year deal.

Moreover, the Gazzetta notes, that amount won’t be lowered at any point during the deal. It is valid for the entire duration of Thuram’s contract with inter.

The Gazzetta suggests that this is an indication of how important of an investment Inter see the Frenchman as.

One of the crucial reasons that the Nerazzurri decided to make the move to sign Thuram is his age.

Unlike a lot of free transfer opportunities who are available at the tail end of their careers, the Frenchman is theoretically in his peak as a footballer.

Thuram turns 26 in August, and his deal with the Nerazzurri sees him at the club until the age of thirty. Inter want to lock the player down for the entirety of this period.

If any club wants to prise Thuram away from Inter in the next few seasons, they’ll need to pay a big fee to do so.
