Striker Marcus Thuram has no regrets at not joining PSG this summer, as he feels that Inter Milan were the right choice for him.

Speaking to French news outlet L’Equipe, via FCInterNews, the 26-year-old reflected on his decision this summer.

Thuram was free to join any club he wanted during the summer transfer window.

Given that the Frenchman’s contract with Borussia Monchengladbach ran out at the end of June, there was no need for an agreement between clubs to facilitate a transfer. Only the decision of the player and his representatives.

And there was no shortage of interest in Thuram’s signature.

The interest from Inter always looked inevitable. The Nerazzurri had already been close to signing Thuram for a fee in 2021.

Moreover, Inter’s propensity to look for free transfer opportunities under Beppe Marotta’s direction is no big secret.

Meanwhile, two other teams pushed hard for Thuram’s signature during the summer.

One were Inter’s city rivals AC Milan. And the other were Paris Saint-Germain.

Marcus Thuram Not Regretting Snubbing PSG – Happy With Inter Decision

PSG would have in some senses been a natural destination for Thuram.

Given that the 26-year-old is a French international, a move to the French capital would always make sense.

And L’Equipe pointed out that Thuram could have had the chance to join his international teammates Randal Kolo Muani and Ousmane Dembele.

Asked whether he regrets not linking up with some fellow Les Bleus stars at the Parc des Princes, Thuram replied “No, why should I be?”

“You should know that two years ago Inter contacted me,” he noted. “I was playing as a winger but they had already identified me as a Number Nine.”

“Not many people had this vision for me,” the striker continued.

“They had a very precise knowledge regarding my potential development,” Thuram said of Inter.

“I spoke with many other clubs,” the Frenchman said. “It wasn’t an easy decision.”

Thuram noted that “It was a choice that would define my career.”

“But I know that I chose correctly,” he went on. “My career has been about an evolutionary path.”

“I’m not going to make a career decision based on my friends,” he said as far as the idea of joining PSG to link up with French international teammates.

“If I want to see them then I’ll go on holiday with them,” he said with a smile.

“I’m not asking anyone to understand my choice,” Thuram continued. “I know why I made it.”

“I know that anyone who knows football knows what Inter represents. The incredible players who have played there.”

“When we wear this shirt, it feels like we are wearing history,” the Frenchman said of playing for Inter.

“There’s an extraordinary enthusiasm there. When we meet people in the street, everyone’s always talking about the next match.”
