Manchester United is set to rival Real Madrid and Juventus for unsettled Paris Saint –Germain defender Thomas Meunier.

Meunier has been on Manchester United’s radar since last summer but the deal could not materialize.

Real Madrid and Juventus have also joined the race to sign the Belgium international who admits he is frustrated with lack of playing time and being second fiddle to Dani Alves this season.

He said: “Since Alves arrived I asked myself questions, this is sure.

“After the good season I had last year, I told myself I would be needed, to be a bit more grateful and that my status within the line-up had changed.

“[Boss Unai] Emery tells me he didn't forget the work done and that he considers me. The problem is that I feel like a second option."

Real Madrid want a replacement for Dani Carvajal who has been sidelined due to his heart viral infection while Juventus is in search for a world-class fullback to fill the void left by Alves.
