Hold onto your hats, folks, because Real Madrid is cooking up a storm in the transfer market! Word on the street is that Khephren Thuram, the young French international midfielder, has caught the eye of the reigning La Liga champs.
According to Spanish outlet Defensa Central, Real Madrid sees Thuram as the heir apparent to the mighty Casemiro. With a market value of a cool €32 million, it looks like things are heating up for the summer transfer window!

Now, if the name Thuram rings a bell, it’s because football royalty runs in the family. Khephren is the son of iconic French defender Lilian Thuram and the younger brother of Marcus Thuram.
This 22-year-old whiz kid may have started from humble beginnings, hopping from one youth academy to another, but boy, has he made a splash since joining OGC Nice in July 2019!
It seems like only yesterday that Khephren was cutting his teeth in the football world, but this dynamo has come a long way in just four short years.
After making his international debut last month and boasting a solid 2022/23 season—with two goals and eight assists in 41 appearances—his market value has skyrocketed to €32 million. No wonder Real Madrid is buzzing about this young talent!
But it ain’t just the Spanish giants vying for Thuram’s attention—top-tier Premier League clubs like Liverpool and Manchester United have also been linked to the prodigy. However, Real Madrid’s interest is a real game-changer for this in-demand midfielder.
Let’s face it: who wouldn’t be tempted by an offer from Los Blancos? With Dani Ceballos’s future up in the air and Luka Modric and Toni Kroos nearing the end of their legendary careers, it’s high time for Real Madrid to snag a fresh face in midfield. And Thuram, with his versatility and ability to play multiple roles, seems like the perfect fit for manager Carlo Ancelotti’s style.

Though his market value currently sits at €32 million, don’t be surprised if OGC Nice plays hardball when it comes to negotiating. With over two years left on his contract, the French club could demand a pretty penny to part ways with their rising star.
So, as the transfer window edges closer, keep your eyes peeled for any developments in this high-stakes game of football musical chairs. A move to the Santiago Bernabeu for Khephren Thuram might just be in the cards, and we can’t wait to see how it all unfolds!
