Belgium international Thomas Meunier has said that he would consider leaving Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the current season. The right-sided defender has previously admitted that he is a big Manchester United fan, and he would consider testing himself in the Premier League at some stage in his career.
Speaking in a recent press conference, the right-back insisted that he may have to assess his Les Parisiens future, should he fail to receive assurances of regular gametime under whoever manages the French outfit next season.
“I’m waiting because a lot of things, including the coach, will change. 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,” he said.
Meunier has forced himself playing second fiddle to Dani Alves over the course of the current campaign, and he appears clear on his mind to move on, should he continue to play a similar role next term.
If this is the case, United are likely to have a keen look at the Belgian, who has an aggressive style to play owing to being a right-sided winger during the early phase of his professional career.
With Antonio Valencia entering the twilight of his career, Jose Mourinho would no doubt want an experienced face to add competition, and Meunier appears ideal to takeover from the Ecuadorian.
Matteo Darmian is widely expected to leave Old Trafford at the end of the season, and this leaves Mourinho with Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Axel Tuanzebe for the back-up role, though both may receive sparse gametime, until they have more experience under their belt.
