Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is plotting a move for Paris Saint Germain defender Thomas Meunier ahead of the January transfer window, according to reports.
The Belgian has been largely unsettled in Paris since the arrival of Dani Alves, who has been the preferred choice for the right full back position.
Reports in The Express claim that United are considering a move for Meunier during the next Winter transfer window, after tracking the defender’s progress and Mourinho will gladly sanction a deal worth 30 million pounds for the defender.
Mourinho is said to be looking at options at the right-back position in order to provide cover for Antonio Valencia, who has been impressive at the positions but he is already gone past the 30 years old mark.
The Belgian is believed to be keen on getting chances elsewhere after been subjected to a reduced role at Paris Saint Germain this season, with reports that he wants to gain more appearances ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
The Red Devils were poised to sign Ivorian defender Serge Aurier during the last summer transfer window, but former Paris Saint Germain defender decided to join Premier League rivals, Tottenham Hotspur instead in order to get more game-time.
