Meunier completes PSG switch

Paris Saint-Germain have completed their second signing of the day, bringing in defender Thomas Meunier on a four-year-deal from Club Brugge.

The Ligue 1 champions had earlier announced the capture of midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak from Sevilla, and Meunier follows him in making the move to Parc des Princes, signing until the end of the 2019-20 season.

Right-back Meunier impressed at Euro 2016 for Belgium, who were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Wales on Friday.

The 24-year-old had been linked with Napoli, but it is PSG who have sealed his signature, having also brought in Hatem Ben Arfa in addition to recruiting Krychowiak.

“I am very honoured to have been chosen by Paris Saint-Germain to come and bolster a squad that already features a number of great players,” Meunier said.

“I signed for Paris because I have a huge desire to keep improving, [gain] experience at the highest level and win titles. I can’t wait to play in the fantastic Parc des Princes stadium.”

PSG’s chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: “I am happy to welcome Thomas Meunier to the club, a player with an enormous potential.

“Thomas drew a large interest from many of Europe’s top clubs, resulting from winning the Belgian championship this past season as well as playing with the Belgian national team.

“He has made the strong choice of joining Paris Saint-Germain, a club with whom he will now share his great ambitions.”

As well as helping Club Brugge to the Pro League title last term, Meunier also won the Belgian Cup in 2015.
