Paris Saint-Germain right back Thomas Meunier has once again spoken out about his love for Manchester United. The Belgian international has been linked with the Red Devils before in the past, and his latest comments may seem like a bit of a ‘come get me’ plea.

“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 reference in the world of football.”
