BVB fans and supporters are jubilating after Thomas Meunier completes move to Borussia Dortmund, and has signed a four-year deal with Dortmund, having been available on a free transfer from Paris Saint-Germain.
Thomas Meunier has now officially left PSG to join Borussia Dortmund, after his contract expired with the French giants.
The 28-year-old right back spent four seasons in the French capital, winning three Ligue 1 titles as well as a pair of Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France trophies.
However, as Thomas Meunier completes move to Borussia Dortmund, he is one of those departing PSG when his contract expires at the end of this month – along with Edinson Cavani and Thiago Silva – and he has quickly found a new home with Bundesliga side Dortmund, who he will join for next season.
“Borussia Dortmund play exactly the football that I want to play: exciting, authentic and natural,” former Club Brugge defender Meunier said in quotes published on the club’s website.
Meunier, who has been capped 40 times by Belgium, could fill the void left by Real Madrid loanee Achraf Hakimi as his two-season loan spell is due to end when the Bundesliga finishes this weekend.
Dortmund want to keep Hakimi for a third successive campaign but other clubs are thought to be interested in the 21-year-old, even if he does not remain with his parent club.
On Meunier, BVBs sporting director Michael Zorc added: “Thomas Meunier is a player who has demonstrated his quality at the highest level in the Champions League and in the national team over a long period of time and will really benefit us with his experience.”
