Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier is set to be Manchester United first summer signing of the transfer window.
According to the Express, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly on the verge of closing in on the Belgium international signature.
Meunier struggled for game time at PSG at the turn of the year due to various injuries which halted his progress in the French capital.
Meunier has previously admitted that he’s a fan of Manchester United and has on several occasions admitted using the club whenever he plays on FIFA.
While the Red Devils’ are believed to be eyeing a summer move for Crystal Palace right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Meunier would make more sense financially for the club with a reported £60million price-tag on the former.
Meunier would cost Man United nothing less than £25million, according to Daily Star, and despite Arsenal’s interest in the 36-cap Belgium international, it seems he has handed the Red Devils a boost in the race for his signature this summer having admitted he likes the club.
Meunier, however, will turn 28-year-old come September and with United willing to offload players ranging from 29-year-old below, this may cause some uncertainties regarding his move to the club.
Man United is strongly keen on luring younger players to their ranks in the summer and the club have been linked with Swansea’s Daniel James which seems like a deal which is a certainty.
The club would surely sign a right-back this summer as a replacement for the aging Antoino Valencia who could be shown the exit door this summer and while Meunier could available for a cut-price this summer, a expect this summer to end in a merry way for the club.
