As the end of the season is getting closer and closer in Europe, many players have their contracts coming to an end. In Paris Saint-Germain, four players are in this situation, among them Thomas Meunier, who will probably not continue with the French team and will probably be heading to Germany’s Borussia Dortmund.
This information was provided by a former PSG and Monaco player and, nowadays, part of France’s RMC Sports Radio, Jerome Rothen. According to him, the arrival of the right-back at the Yellow & Black German club is basically granted for next season. He said that Dortmund had secured the contract for Meunier and added that he could guarantee this information 100%.
Something that could help with Meunier’s arrival in Dortmund is the presence of two countrymen, the Belgians Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazards. Both are friends of the right-back and may step up in the negotiation.
Some sources also said that the player would like to remain in Paris, playing for PSG. However, the AS newspaper claims that Leonardo, Paris Saint-Germain’s Sports director, has not made any offers until now. This is also one of the reasons they are saying that Meunier opted for Dortmund, once he will remain at a top team in Europe.
Meunier has played in 128 official matches for the Parisian club, scored 13 goals and gave 19 assists. This season, however, there were only 27 games in which he played, and just one goal scored, in PSG’s match against Real Madrid back in the group stage of the Champions League.
Moving to Dortmund may be good for him and for the club. It is almost certain that he will play, once one of the biggest problems for the Yellow & Black is the defense. Achraf Hakimi should return to Real Madrid, and he is one of the best players in the team. Mateu Morey still needs time and Lukasz Piszczek has currently been used more like a third defender, and he is also 34 years old.
If Meunier really goes to Borussia Dortmund, I’m sure he will have a place in the team and maybe help them improve their defensive system. And also the player will remain in a top club in Europe. Win-win.
