Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier has agreed a four-year contract to join Borussia Dortmund. Bild claims that the 28-year-old has been in talks with the German club for weeks and an agreement is getting close. Dortmund has the hope to confirm the deal with the Belgium international before the end of the week.
Meunier is one of the players at PSG who will leave on a free transfer this summer next to Thiago Silva and Edinson Cavani. The trio had been offered a short term contract to play for PSG during the remaining matches and rounds in the Champions League, but both Meunier and Cavani have rejected the offer.
28-year-old Meunier had been a first team regular at PSG over the past few seasons since joining them from Club Brugge in 2016, but has found himself on the bench on more than one occasion this season under Thomas Tuchel. This season he played a total of 16 games in the Ligue 1.
UPDATE: Dortmund confirm transfer of Thomas Meunier
Thomas Meunier is officially a Borussia Dortmund player. The Belgian defender has signed a multi-year deal at the German giants which will keep him at the club until 2024. Meunier has signed for Dortmund on a free transfer after his contract at Paris Saint-Germain is set to expire next week.
