Deal close – £22million star likely to secure Man Utd move

Thomas Meunier

Manchester United are looking to reinforce their defense in the summer transfer window and a Belgium international is in the lime light.

According to La Derniere Heure, PSG star Thomas Meunier is very close to moving to Man Utd.

The Brussels based outlet have claimed that the French giants rate the defender at 25 million euros (£22million) and paying that fee is not going to be an issue for the Red Devils.

Transfer: Man Utd will advance with massive proposal to sign £106million playmaker

As far as our right back situation is concerned, skipper Antonio Valencia, only featured in 6 PL games in the last campaign, on the other hand, Ashley Young, who will turn 34 next month, was a regular starter.

The Ecuadorian international will be out of contract at the end of this month and the England international is past his best.

Mourinho did sign young Dalot in the summer transfer window of last year but the Portuguese starlet still needs more experience to become a regular starter at Old Trafford.

Therefore, an experienced star should be bought for the right back role and Meunier fits the bill. The 27-year-old has won every major title in France. For the national team, he has already made 36 appearances and scored 6 goals.

The former Brugge defender can effectively play in the midfield as well. Unfortunately, he was often on the treatment table in the last campaign and only started 19 times in the league.

He is productive in the attacking third as well and he directly contributed in 12 goals in 31 appearances for the Ligue 1 champions.

In your view, is Meunier good enough to improve our back-line?


  1. Im sure he would be a much needed and a massive improvement to who we already have in the right back position.
