New contacts between Barça and Meunier

  • Barça and a person representing the Dortmund defender have intensified conversations, as KG has learned 
  • He is the alternative to Juan Foyth, who continues to be Xavi’s priority for the right back, although it is not easy
  • The German team would be asking for 15 million euros for the defender and Barça does not want to spend more than 10

The Belgian international Thomas Meunier (30 years old) is one of the objectives that Barça manages to reinforce the right side in these last days of the market. He is the alternative to John Foyth. And if a few days ago there was a summit with the agents of the Villarreal player, Barça and the agents with powers of the Borussia Dortmund defender have maintained new contacts to explore his situation and the viability of a possible contract, as KG has learned.

According to Mundo Deportivo club sources consulted explain that although Xavi likes the ‘yellow submarine’ player more, Meunier would also fit in with Barça, which needs a right-back after the coach has publicly ruled out Dest and only has Sergi Roberto as a replacement. There are only eight days left for the summer market to close. Dortmund asks for 15 ‘kilos’ and Barça does not want to go over 10.

Juan Foyth is currently preferred for the position, but it is very expensive. His termination clause, negotiable, is 42 million euros. He is also a Belgian defender, who would like to play at Camp Nou and in LaLiga. Playing for Barça is considered a dream, as this newspaper already explained, and his environment is calibrating this option, although from Dortmund they would not be very up for the work, nor is ‘the yellow submarine’. The player is willing to adjust the record to the claims of the salary cap. The problem is the German club, which is asking for a lot. 

In the winter market, they add, there were already contacts proposing an immediate landing, although at Barça they were clear then that the objective was Azpilicueta. Sebastian Keh l, former footballer and current sports director of the German team assured that it is not in his plans to release a player who has been a starter in the first two Bundesliga games and in the first DFB Pokal tie. “Currently we don’t see any reason to sell it. That is not in our plans”, said Kehl, in statements collected by the newspaper ‘Ruhr Nachrichten’.
