According to the latest reports, Manchester United are plotting a transfer move for Paris Saint-Germain out-of-favourite defender Thomas Meunier.
The 26-year-old Thomas Meunier had an impressive debut campaign at PSG last term but the Belgian is struggling for game-time following the arrival of Brazilian right-back Dani Alves ahead of the 2017/18 season.
The Belgian international admitted earlier this month that he’s ‘frustrated’ with a lack of minutes under the PSG boss Unai Emery which appears to have put the Red Devils on alert.
The reports from Daily Express claim that the Premier League giants are ready to make a £30m move for Meunier and have been keeping tabs on the full-back for some time.
Man United are on the hunt for Antonio Valencia’s long-term replacement at club and Meunier is believed to be Jose Mourinho’s priority target.
‘Yes [I am frustrated] because I want to play every match, whether it’s against Gueugnon, Niort or Bayern Munich,’ the Belgium international admitted earlier this month.
‘I want to be on the pitch every time. I am in a team which is one of the top five in the world where the back-ups and the starters are about the same level.’
Back in February, Meunier admitted he dreams of joining United, the club he has supported since childhood. He said: ‘On the other side of the Channel, there are the stadiums, the fans.
‘And I’ve never hidden that I’m a big fan of Manchester United, which remains, in my eyes, the real reference in the world of football.’
