His performances helped Belgium finish third, their best ever showing at a World Cup.

According to Diario Sport, Meunier now wants clarification over his future, knowing that Barcelona would be interested in bringing him to the Nou Camp.

It is not clear how much Meunier would cost.

Barca are searching for a right-back having mostly used Sergi Roberto there last season.

Nelson Semedo was unable to nail down the starting berth and Aleix Vidal has not been the same player since his injury.

Barca would prefer to move Roberto back into midfield, especially with Paulinho and Andres Iniesta both having left this summer.

Barcelona also sold Gerard Deulofeu to Watford but have spent almost £60million bringing in Brazilian talent Arthur Melo from Gremio and French defender Clement Lenglet from Sevilla.
