Inter executive Piero Ausilio discussed the Nerazzurri’s decision to sign Marcus Thuram after Lukaku’s withdrawal from negotiations.
Following the Belgian striker’s switch to Roma, Ausilio spoke about the importance of finding a valid replacement in Marcus Thuram.
“Who do I pick between Marcus Thuram and Lukaku? Marcus Thuram, absolutely,” Ausilio said in an interview with Il Pertini Radio. “Vecause he is a boy who wanted Inter, he chose it at least as much as we chose him.”
“We had already closed the deal two years ago and then he got hurt a few days after the agreement. But we never forgot about him and he evidently never forgot about us. Even when other clubs were asking for him, he chose Inter as Inter chose him.”
