• Meunier prefers to stay in Paris
  • Meunier knows he will have options after this season
  • Multiple teams pursuing Belgian defender

Thomas Meunier knows that his current deal with Paris Saint-Germain will be up soon but the 28-year-old full-back is not fretting. He does prefer to stay in Parc des Princes but is fully aware that there is a chance he could be moving out depending on how talks go.

For the record, the name of Meunier has been in transfer talk rumors for quite some time now. Part of that may be because he has appeared in only 15 Ligue 1 games, sending off mixed feelers that he may want more exposure on the field. Some teams could give him that with teams like Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham mentioned as possible landing spots in the summer transfer window, reported.

Thus far, the only teams who have talked with the Belgian defender are Dortmund and Bayern Munich. Other teams linked to him are Arsenal and Manchester United but both teams have yet to past the rumor mill. Given the number of teams linked and possibly interested in his services, there is no denying Meunier has options. The only question right now is which club will win his services.

"A free, international player, who plays in the FIFA ranked world’s No.1 team (Belgium) and who is 28 years old, it cannot be a bad buy, even if I get gangrene and I have to cut off a leg!" Meunier said to RTBF. “Clubs don’t have much to lose in the investment, and I think they know it. They have everything to gain."

Until something concrete comes up, Meunier reiterated that he is pretty happy over in Paris. It was always his objective and all remain calm for now. The 28-year-old started his career in PSG back in 2016 following a switch from Club Brugge. Thus far, Meunier has racked up 111 appearances across all competitions and has scored eight goals. He has also won two Ligue 1 winner's medals.

Despite the transfer rumors, PSG boss Thomas Tuchel says that Meunier is pretty important to the team. He seems to be aware of the contract distractions surrounding the Belgian but believes it will serve as a problem for them moving forward.
