Man United move into pole position to sign PSG star

Belgian right-back has slipped down the pecking order in Paris following the summer arrival of Brazilian icon Dani Alves

MANCHESTER UNITED, Real Madrid and Juventus are all reportedly interested in Paris Saint-Germain ace Thomas Meunier.

Mundo Deportivo via TMW claims the European powerhouses are all eyeing PSG’s Belgian right-back following his recent outburst over a lack of playing time.

Meunier was content to settle for a rotation role when he joined PSG from Club Brugge in 2016, swapping on a weekly basis with now-Spurs star Serge Aurier.

But the recent arrival of Brazilian icon Dani Alves has seen Meunier’s status reduced even further.

And he could now be on his way out of the Parc des Princes after declaring: “Since Alves arrived I asked myself questions, this is sure.

“After the good season I had last year, I told myself I would be needed, to be a bit more grateful and that my status within the line-up had changed.

“[Boss Unai] Emery tells me he didn’t forget the work done and that he considers me. The problem is that I feel like a second option.”

Should he decide to leave PSG, Meunier certainly won’t be short of options, with Man Utd said to be extremely keen as Jose Mourinho seeks new defenders.

But Juventus could be Meunier’s preferred choice, with the Italians failing to replace Alves when he quit Turin for Paris last summer.
