Manchester United admirer Thomas Meunier refuses to rule out leaving Paris Saint Germain

by Leo Nieboer

Paris Saint Germain and Belgium right back Thomas Meunier has confirmed he will consider leaving the Parc des Princes over the summer.

The right-back admitted at the start of the season that he was a big Manchester United fan and has spoken of a desire to test himself in the Premier League.

Jose Mourinho will be on the lookout for options at right-back in the summer as Antonio Valencia enters the twilight stage of his career while Matteo Darmian, who has hardly played this season, looks set to leave the club.

And the Belgian, speaking earlier this week, noted that he would consider his options in the summer.

“I’m waiting because a lot of things, including the coach, will change,” he said.

“I am no longer 18, I am 26, I am in full possession of my means. I need to assert myself in a club. I need to show what I can do. The club knows my position.”

Meunier has been forced to play second fiddle to Dani Alves for the majority of this term and, at the age of 26, will seek assurances from whoever PSG next appoint in the summer that more chances will come next season.

He will likely leave the Ligue 1 side if he cannot be guaranteed a regular starting place, and Mourinho, in turn, would be foolish to pass up the opportunity to bring in a player who clearly loves United and wants to assert himself as a big club.
