Bayern Munich is willing to offer a seven million euros contract to Thuram

Bayern Munich is well aware of the interest in Thuram from top European clubs, particularly Juventus.

Juventus will then have to pay a small fee to the parent club, which will like to let the player go for a small fee instead for free in the summer.

According to an Italian outlet, SportMediaset Bayern is ready to offer a huge contract to lure him.
