Marcus Thuram and Kylian Mbappé like each other, and it shows. The two compatriots, teammates in the France team, could also have met this summer in club. After leaving for Borussia Mönchengladbach, the striker finally chose to join Inter Milan, where he is now thriving with seven goals in 20 games. Randal Kolo Muani finally became the new Parisian recruit, in the very last moments of the transfer window.

Kylian Mbappé would have liked to see his compatriot join him. In a segment broadcast on Canal+, in the Canal Football Club show on Sunday evening, on the occasion of an interview with Lilian Thuram's son, the captain of Les Bleus asked him: "why didn't you come to PSG?" The answer came after a chuckle: "He knows very well why I didn't come to Paris."

Asked to clarify his thoughts, Marcus Thuram assured that he had not had any demands in terms of playing time with PSG. "I've never asked for guarantees of playing time, I don't think there is," he said. When you go to a club, it's to impose yourself or not. It was a matter of feeling. Inter were there two years ago, Inter always saw me as a number 9, so it was a clear choice. »

The France international also reflected on his new role on the attacking front. He said he feels good in the No.9 position, in which he has thrived for the past two years. Marcus Thuram also explained that he received, in his debut in the France team, advice from another top French striker, Karim Benzema, "an open book" on the position according to Thuram. This advice is undoubtedly valuable given the career of the former Madrid player, who has scored 354 goals in 648 games for Real Madrid and won the 2022 Ballon d'Or.
