Man Utd targets Thomas Meunier “in talks with Tottenham” on transfer


Thomas Meunier spoke to Tottenham Hotspur director Jose Mourinho about a transfer this summer, according to a report from France.

The Belgian right-back is expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of his contract in June, after four years with the Ligue 1 club.

Meunier, 28, has made 128 appearances for PSG but has played fewer minutes this season due to the continued development of teammate Thilo Kehrer.

As such, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel is unlikely to offer Meunier a new contract and clubs across Europe have been put on the alert with the prospect of wresting the experienced side on a free transfer.

Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan, Manchester United and Napoli have all made “first contact”, but the French newspaper The team report that the Spurs are in pole position to sign the Belgian international.

Mourinho is reported to have told Meunier that he would like him to join the Spurs next season on a phone call, and he was impressed with his treatment, which contrasts with the way he has been treated at PSG this campaign.

Meunier still hopes to stay at PSG and would seize the opportunity to be offered a new agreement at the Parc des Princes, although sports director Leonardo seems unlikely to give him one and there has been no conversation on a extension.

The report adds that Meunier loves Paris and owns his house there, but the Spurs have been the most persistent pretender “by far”.

However, Mourinho’s plans could be canceled by Spurs president Daniel Levy, who is against the decision for unknown reasons.

Sucker has been used in a variety of roles throughout his career, ranging from his natural right aft berth to the center midfield and even on each wing.

He has played 40 games with Belgium, scored seven goals and won five major honors in his four years with PSG.
