Paris Saint-Germain right back Thomas Meunier has revealed he is growing frustrated at the club in what will be a boost to Manchester United.
United have been linked with the Belgian international in recent weeks, as Jose Mourinho plans to find a long term replacement for Antonio Valencia. Valencia has been in fine form under the Portuguese manager, and has even been handed the captains armband in the absence of club captain, Michael Carrick this season.
However, the 32-year-old Ecuadorean is approaching the latter end of his career and Mourinho is planning for for the future, with Meunier one of his targets.
The Belgian has admitted that he is growing frustrated at his limited opportunities in the French capital following the arrival of Brazilian full back Dani Alves.
Speaking to L’Equipe, the 26-year-old said:
“Yes, because I want to play every match, whether it’s against Gueugnon, Niort or Bayern Munich.
“I want to be on the pitch every time. I am in a team which is one of the top five in the world where the back-ups and the starters are about the same level..
“For me, Serge (Aurier) and Dani are equal. Dani has experience and he is a leader on the pitch.
“It takes a bit of luck sometimes. I see the choices of the coach. I just have to be patient for now, because I’m not the priority.
“But I will do everything to complicate the choices as much as possible when I play.
“I do what I can and I usually play good matches, which is important for the technical staff because they know they can count on me, but they already knew that last season.”
Meunier recently stole the headlines for Belgium, scoring a hat trick and providing four assists in a 9-0 win over Gibraltar.
