PSG right-back Meunier reveals Chelsea tried to sign him on Deadline Day

by -

Paris Saint-Germain star Thomas Meunier has revealed Chelsea placed a deadline day transfer offer to land him to Stamford Bridge, before setting their sights on former Torino right-back Davide Zappacosta, who joined the Blues on a £25m move.

“On the last day of the transfer period, they made an offer to Paris but I know it was no, – Meunier said – From the club, they didn’t want to sell me – because we have two right-backs, with Dani Alves and me, it was difficult to sell one.”

Then he added: “I didn’t really think about it [a move to Chelsea] because they called me in they told me ‘you will not move at all so don’t think about Chelsea or another club, you will not move so you stay in Paris and we are counting on your for the rest of the season’.”

Meunier is a regular starter in Belgium national team, alongside with Thibaut Courtois, Eden Hazard and Michy Batshuayi.
