Many in the media and supporters want Paris Saint-Germain to add more French talent to their squad. As a result, the capital club has been linked to prominent France international players these last few weeks.
Two players on PSG’s radar could be brothers Marcus Thuram and Khéphren Thuram. Both players are with the France national team for the UEFA Euro 2024 qualifiers this international window and were asked about playing together.
PSG wasn’t explicitly named, but the reporter did ask if they’d be interested in playing for a big French club, which the two players took a minute to replay with a smile and a laugh as they knew something others didn’t.
“You know, we both have different careers,” Marcus told reporters (h/t Canal Supporters). “If it turns out that one day we play in the same club, it will be with pleasure. But it’s not an obsession. Khéphren will make his decisions and I mine. If they are the same, so much the better. Otherwise, it’s not an obsession.”
Khéphren Thuram & Marcus Thuram asked in today’s press conference if they would like to play together at the same football club, possibly PSG, as soon as this summer – this was their reaction.

Marcus will be the more accessible player for PSG to land as the 25-year-old is a free agent in June when his contract with Borussia Mönchengladbach expires.
Now as for Khéphren, he’s under contract with OGC Nice until 2025 and so a fee will need to be paid. Transfermarkt has the 21-year-old midfielder’s value at €25 million, which isn’t all that expensive and PSG was linked to him last summer.
If sporting advisor Luis Campos can land these two players it will go a long way in helping build a team at PSG.
