Just like Tottenham’s Jan Vertonghen, Thomas Meunier is now expected to be a free agent in the summer.
The Belgian, who has stated publicly a number of times in interviews that he wants to stay at Paris Saint-Germain, hasn’t accepted the latest renewal offer from the Ligue 1 champions, and ‘the divorce is finalised’.
This is what Le Parisien are reporting on Thursday, explaining the French club ‘will not go further’ in offering him a new contract and ‘he doesn’t want to continue the adventure’ in Paris.
In fact, the newspaper report Meunier’s public statements about his desire to remain ‘have ended up annoying his employer, even when they are full of praise’.
That means Paris Saint-Germain are now officially on the market for a new right-back, with a number of options being explored, but the paper are adamant Meunier’s replacement won’t be Achraf Hakimi, deemed too expensive.
