Thomas Meunier is seeking discussions with Paris Saint-Germain over his future – with Barcelona reportedly interested in the right-back.
The Belgium World Cup star is open to an exit this season if he remains second choice in Paris.
The 26-year-old was one of Belgium’s most consistent players in Russia, scoring a goal and adding two assists for the Red Devils.
His performances helped Belgium finish third, their best ever showing at a World Cup.
But at PSG last season, Meunier was the back-up to Dani Alves.
Menuier started only 19 games all season, while Alves – nine years his senior – started 33.

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.
