Thomas Meunier is set to be the first signing of the Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era as the Red Devils close in on his signature according to the Express.
The Belgian right-back, currently at Paris St Germain, has struggled for game time since the turn of the year due to various injuries which has halted his progress in the French capital. It is also reported that his relationship with PSG manager, Thomas Tuchel, has been on the rocks recently meaning the defender is a keen on a way out of Paris.
The 27-year-old has previously admitted that he has always been a fan of Manchester United and has admitted in the past that he plays with them on FIFA.
United were reportedly keen to bring Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Old Trafford in the summer yet due to his high price evaluation, which is understood to be at £60million, a move for Meunier would make more sense financially and is likely an easier buy.
It is believed the full-back will cost Manchester United £22million and despite Arsenal’s interest in the player, it seems he has favoured Manchester in a summer move. The defender will turn 28 come September though which may cause uncertainty in the United camp over his signature.
Solksjaer is understandably keen on bringing young players to Old Trafford in the summer and the Red Devils have been linked with Swansea’s Daniel James which seems like a deal which is a certainty.
Despite his age, Manchester United are known to be in the hunt for a right-back this summer as a replacement for the aging Antonio Valencia and it seems that Meunier fits their bill and price range and will soon be making his way to Manchester to secure first-team football.
