Arsenal, Juventus and Manchester United will lock horn in signing Paris Saint Germain defender Thomas Meunier, according to the Mirror.

The 28-year-old Belgium international was linked with a move to Arsenal in summer but a move never materialised.

Several reports suggest Meunier will see his current deal with PSG expire at the end of the 2019-20 campaign, and it is thought that the defender will move on after becoming frustrated with his lack of playing time.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to strengthen at left-back and though Meunier prefers to play on the right, he is adept on either side.

And the Belgian’s hinted he would be open to leaving PSG by admitting he’s frustrated at a lack of opportunities.

He told RTBF : “It was an intense period, with a lot of interest and discussion.

“I could have left but it was not done because there was nothing that suited the club or myself. Nothing was 100 per cent for it to work.

 ‘My philosophy and mentality have never changed,’ said Meunier.

‘I have been saying since my first steps here at PSG that I would be devoted to the club until the end of my contract or more.

‘He [Thomas Tuchel] will be able to count on me.

‘Sometimes it is a bit frustrating and the happiness in football is in playing.

‘But choices have been made and the coach will take his own decisions’

Our Opinion

I strongly believe Meunier will fit into the United team as the Red Devils are currently struggling at the back, his wealth of experience is what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs right now to stabilize his defence.
