Man Utd keep tabs on Thomas Meunier transfer amid uncertainty over PSG future – The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED are keeping tabs on Thomas Meunier amid uncertainty over his Paris Saint-Germain future, according to reports.
The 28-year-old right-back has been with the French side since 2016 but never established himself as a regular starter.
United splashed £50million on Aaron Wan-Bissaka last summer so moving again for a player in the same position seems a stretch – although they are looking at Juventus star Matthijs de Ligt.
French outlet Le Foot claim United are staying on top of Meunier's plans – with Inter Milan and Borussia Dortmund also linked with the former Club Brugge man.
Meunier's contract expires in June and he has previously rubbished talk of him joining Tottenham, while revealing he is yet to receive an offer from any other club.
He said: "A free, international player, who plays in the FIFA ranked world’s No.1 team (Belgium) and who is 28 years old, it cannot be a bad buy, even if I get gangrene and I have to cut off a leg!
"Clubs don’t have much to lose in the investment, and I think they know it. They have everything to gain.
"Everything that circulates on me on social media with Dortmund, I don’t understand. I’ve seen so many articles linking me to Tottenham or Inter.
"I don’t understand this craze. My main objective is always to stay in Paris, but for the moment it’s pretty calm."
Meunier has racked up 111 appearances for PSG across all competitions, scoring eight goals and claiming two Ligue 1 winners medals.
And despite his bit-part role, Parc des Princes boss Thomas Tuchel says he intends to keep Meunier at the club.
He said: "Thiago [Silva] is my captain, nothing has changed, it's the same for Thomas.
"I see them as very professional players. Thomas plays a lot, he is super important for us. Both are awesome and I'm glad they're here, I don't think it [the contract situation] bothers [them]."
