Unless there’s a drastic reversal, Thomas Meunier will not sign a contract extension to remain at Paris Saint-Germain and it’s possible that he’s played his last game with the club.
According to Le Parisien, Meunier has had an offer from PSG in front of him since last fall but has refused to put pen to paper. Despite his contract situation, Meunier continues to tell the media that he wants to remain in Paris.
Meunier last played for PSG on March 4, in the Coupe de France semi-finals against Olympique Lyonnais. The Ligue 1 season has been canceled but the UEFA Champions League, Coupe de France final, and Coupe de la Ligue final could all be played later this summer.
The Belgium international’s current deal expires on June 30, and even if FIFA allows players to extend their deal to finish out the season, it would be up to the players to decide whether or not they want to extend and Meunier may not want to risk his health before joining another team.
Speaking of other teams, the French publication reports that Borussia Dortmund are the most serious contenders to sign Meunier with Tottenham Hostpur the other option where the 28-year-old would compete with former PSG teammate Serge Aurier for the starting right-back position.
Losing Meunier will be a blow for PSG who were already prioritizing a right-back in the upcoming transfer window. Those who were hoping to see Achraf Hakimi in PSG colors will have to dream on. Le Parisien reports that the Real Madrid man (on loan at Dortmund) will cost around €55 million, which is too high of a price to pay.
