Barcelona and Real Madrid are ready to fight for talented forward from the Bundesliga.
23-year-old Marcus Thuram has been creating a lot of noise in the footballing world, and he has been able to garner the attention of some of the most prestigious and elite European teams including the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid. The player is currently playing for Borrusia Monchengladbach but reports suggest that if given an offer, Thuram will most likely take it as the French forward would want to reach greater heights and win domestic and European trophies big Elite clubs.
Thuram has been playing quite well for the German side and his tally of 14 goals and 9 assists helped Monchengladbach qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The French forward has started the current season quite strongly as well. He has registered 3 goals and 5 assists in all competition so far. One of his main strengths is his ability to play in all the forward positions. The player has the uncanny ability to play as a center-forward as well as on both the wings. This is one of the reasons why clubs are very much interested in him.
Barcelona in particular are looking for a high profile center-forward but they will also be happy with Thuram as he can offer service on the wings as well. As it would happen, Thuram’s father used to play for the club as well so he might want his son to follow in his footsteps. The forward has already been getting praises from notable figures such as former Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger who said in an interview with Der Spiegel,
“Henry had the timing of the smartest footballers. He was also very physically strong. And technically I could do everything: join the combination game, haggle with defenders, block. In fact, there is one player in the Bundesliga who reminds me of him: Marcus Thuram of Borussia Munchengladbach.”

Barcelona and Real Madrid are two of the most notable clubs who are scouting him at the moment. It will be unlikely that the Catalans could sign him as they are going through a financial crunch and they can only acquire him if they can sort out their problems before their arch-rivals can snatch him from under their noses.
