PSG: Mourinho in pliers for Meunier
Thomas Meunier ready to spin the English way? If he repeatedly repeats his desire to extend to Paris, the Belgian international, free at the end of the season, has still not seen anything coming. Worse, Leonardo is actively working on the arrival of a new right-back, according to various sources. Suddenly, the hypothesis of a departure takes a little more breadth each week. Lately Dortmund seemed to be holding the rope. But according to L'Equipe, Meunier has an enticing touch in England. In this case, Tottenham thinks (very hard) of him. More specifically, it is José Mourinho who would like to get his services, while President Levy is not completely convinced. The Portuguese technician has already spoken to the former from Bruges, who we know is very interested in the idea of playing in the Premier League, on the phone. The sports daily adds that Inter and Naples are on the spot too, but especially specifies that Meunier, 28 years old, "still hopes for a gesture" from the Parisian management. Otherwise, he would be spoiled for choice…
