BARCELONA AND THOMAS MEUNIER TRANSFER LINKS FULL STORY
According to reports, Barcelona are interested in the services of Thomas Meunier. The Catalan club are keen to bolster the right-back position. They have already released Dani Alves and are ready to sell Sergino Dest. This means they only have Sergio Roberto as a settled right-back at the club. Hence, they are keen to sign a new full-back before the transfer window ends.
It seems like Thomas Meunier’s name has popped on the rumor list. The report states that Barcelona are ready to pay 10 million euros for the Belgian full-back. Xavi’s main target was Cesar Azpilicueta from Chelsea. However, he decided to sign a new contract with the Blues. Hence, it looks like Thomas Meunier has been seen as an alternative option for the position.
BORUSSIA DORTMUND WOULD BE OPEN TO SELLING HIM FOR THE RIGHT PRICE
Thomas Meunier has been dubbed as one of the best right-backs in Europe. The right-back has also suffered injury setbacks at the Bundesliga club. However, he has done well to recover from the fitness setbacks. The full-back has been a regular starter for the German giants. However, there are rumors suggesting that the player can leave the club this summer.
The report also states that the club are ready to sell him for over 10 million euros to the interested clubs. However, Barcelona are only ready to shell out 10 million for the right-back. This is because they have a number of alternatives for the position including his teammate Mateu Morey. Hence, it will be interesting to see if Meunier joins the Catalan giants.
Thomas Meuiner has played 62 times for Borussia Dortmund. He has chipped in with 3 goals. He has also provided seven assists. This is a very good record for a full-back considering Meunier generally plays and does not bomb forward many times.
