Thomas Meunier could be even more excited about potential Manchester United move than fans are
Thomas Meunier may be packing his bags already for Old Trafford.
He claims to be a big United fan and will surely jump at the chance to join amid reports the club are eyeing a move.
United have been tracking the PSG defender all season and he is on the shortlist of summer options, The Sun report.
This is a development Meunier will be even more excited about than most supporters.
The 27-year-old right-back is a potential replacement for Ashley Young and an alternative option to Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Right-back has been a major issue for the Red Devils all season. Meunier is a very credible option as a solution to the problems.
Meunier will not need to think twice about signing for United.
He claims to be a supporter, and this has even got him into hot water with PSG supporters.
Meunier was quoted by the Manchester Evening News referencing comments he made in 2017.
On the other side of the channel, there are the stadiums, the fans, and I’ve never hidden that I’m a big fan of Manchester United, which remains, in my eyes, the real reference in the world of football.
He also recently liked an Instagram post congratulating United on the win over Watford, which infuriated PSG fans, as the MEN reported.
The Belgian international is out of contract in 2020, so PSG could be tempted to cash in this summer.
He came off the bench in PSG’s recent defeat to United, and has had to play second fiddle to Dani Alves.
Meunier won’t be many fans first choice signing at right-back, but he would be an improvement on Young.
At the age of 27, he may work better as a compliment for Diogo Dalot’s development, rather than Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who is at a similar age.
He would be a solid choice, and fairly priced. And given his fandom for United, he would give everything for the shirt.
