Paris St. Germain right-back Thomas Meunier’s move to Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer is only a formality, reports in Germany say.
Meunier has been heavily linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund in recent weeks, with several French outlets confirming that the two parties are in advanced talks. Former PSG player Jerome Rothen claimed on Sunday that Meunier had already signed a contract with the Black and Yellows.
Now BILD report that the Belgian international will join Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer this summer, and the move is now only a formality. Funke Sport confirmed Dortmund’s interest in signing Meunier yesterday, but added that although the transfer is not yet perfect, the chances of it happening are very good.
Meunier, who joined PSG from Club Brugge in 2016, is keen on leaving the French club on a free transfer this summer. His arrival at Borussia Dortmund would signal the end of Achraf Hakimi’s time at the club. Hakimi’s two year loan deal ends this summer, and he is expected to return to Real Madrid.
Lukasz Piszczek is also nearing the end of his career, and it remains to be seen if he will receive a new contract. Dortmund also have former Barcelona academy graduate Mateu Morey in their ranks.
Meunier has been a regular for PSG this season, making a total of 27 appearances in all competitions. The 28 year old is capable of playing both as a right-back in a back four and as a wing-back in a back three.
If he does join Borussia Dortmund this summer, Meunier will become the third Belgian international at the club, joining Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard.
