PSG news: Meunier considering PSG future

11 months ago

In the latest Paris Saint-Germain news, Thomas Meunier has revealed he is prepared to leave the club this summer in order to get more first-team football.

Meunier looked to be set for a long-term career at the French giants after impressing in his debut season at the Parc des Princes following his move from Club Brugge in the summer of 2016, in a deal believed to be around 7million euros.

However, the arrival of veteran Dani Alves last summer has seen his game-time take a hit, making only 25 appearances across all competitions this season.

It seems that Meunier is considering his future in the French capital and although he does admit he would like to stay with Les Parisiens, his decision will come down to whether he can secure a regular starting place.

Speaking to Belgian media outlet RTBF, Meunier said: “I do not ask too much for now, what I want is to play football. If I have to go down a notch to be able to be on the pitch, I’ll do it.

“We will see how it goes, I have two more years in Paris, my goal is to stay in. I like it a lot, just like my family.”

Meunier will be looking to put himself in the shop window this summer if, as expected, he makes Belgium’s World Cup squad, with Roberto Martinez’s men available at 12/1 with Ladbrokes to lift the trophy in Russia.

The 26-year-old has seen the benefits of a move made by international team-mate Michy Batshuayi and he is simply looking to secure first-team action, wherever it may be.

“I could aim at a club like Everton, Valencia or Dortmund,” he added. “Michy Batshuayi did really well going there, the fun is playing football, and that’s the only thing I miss right now.”
