Manchester United interested in Khephren Thuram

Manchester United are weighing up a summer move for Nice midfielder Khephren Thuram.

The 22-year-old began his professional career with Monaco, and later moved to Nice in 2019. He has since played 129 matches for his current team, contributing eight goals and 11 assists across all competitions.

The Frenchman has played a vital role for the Ligue 1 outfit in the current season, featuring in 39 games, scoring twice and providing eight assists.

According to 90min, Manchester United are interested in signing Thuram, who recently made his international debut for France in their 4-0 win over the Netherlands.

However, the Red Devils may face stiff competition from Liverpool and Newcastle United, who are also said to be keen on the midfielder.

Meanwhile, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan, and Juventus are said to be monitoring Thuram’s performances for Nice closely.

Thuram was asked about his future and responded by stating that he is content with his current situation. He explained that he is fully committed to his current club, Nice, and is striving to develop and grow with the team. Although he is aware of the interest from other clubs, his main focus is to perform well and be happy where he is.

Man United are expected to prioritise signing a new centre-forward during the summer transfer window. However, the 20-time English champions may also seek to acquire at least one central midfielder, potentially leading to Scott McTominay’s departure.

Thuram is considered to be a more cost-effective option compared to other potential targets such as Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund or Declan Rice of West Ham United, who may cost around £100m.

Thuram has a contract with Nice until June 2025.
