Paris Saint-Germain full-back Thomas Meunier has revealed he dreams about playing for Manchester United.
Speaking in an interview ahead of tonight’s clash with Barcelona, the right-back told DH and as translated by Sport Witness, he admires the fans and the stadiums in the Premier League and that “one day” he would like to move to England.
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.”
Meunier, however, admits he’s a huge fan of United’s current right-back Antonio Valencia and has played down the chances of him replacing him any time soon.
“Ah, but you forgot about Antonio Valencia. He’s quite the player,” he added. “Plus, I’m pretty sure he’s just extended his contract by a year.”
Valencia, 31, has a deal until June 2018, but there’s no doubt Jose Mourinho will be looking at alternative options with the former Wigan man coming to the end of his time at Old Trafford and Matteo Darmian looking likely to move on in the summer.

The PSG man signed in the summer from Club Brugge for just over £5million and has made 23 appearances this term, scoring twice.
