Manchester United is a club all players might dream playing for one day and Paris Saint-Germain right back has recently admitted that he is a part of that group as the defender wishes to one day play for the red half of Manchester some time in his future.
Thomas Meunier spoke to DH ahead of his match against Barcelona in the Champions League and as translated by Sport Witness, he reportedly admires the fans and stadiums in England and one day would want to be there playing his football.
Meunier said,”I’ve always said that one day, I would like to play in the Premier League. I’m very happy in Paris and if I finish my career there, it won’t be a disappointment, far from it. But, if one day, I had to leave Paris, why not?”
“On the other side of the Channel, there are the stadiums, the fans, and I’ve never hidden that I’m a big fan of Manchester United, which remains, in my eyes, the real pinnacle in the world of football.”
However, Meunier was also modest in admitting how he is a fan of current right back Antonio Valencia and believes that he is too good to be replaced at the moment especially after he signed a one year extension.
Valencia has a deal with the Red Devils until 2018 but Mourinho will be set to go out looking for options with Darmian rumoured to be leaving in the summer.
The French right back signed for the club in the summer from Club Brugge for a fee of £5 million and has made over 23 appearances already this term, while netting in two goals.
Mourinho described Valencia as the best right back in the world and Meunier will have to better that if he hopes of becoming an integral part of one of England’s biggest clubs one day.
