‘Barcelona identifies new transfer target in the rear of Dortmund’

Thomas Meunier can count on Barcelonas interest, reports Mundo Deportivo. The Belgian defender has indicated that he wants to leave Borussia Dortmund and Barcelona hopes to benefit from that.
Talks between Barcelona and a representative of Meunier would now intensify, since the right-back indicated that he wants to leave Germany. The thirty-year-old Belgian still has a contract until 2024 in Dortmund. The club management therefore wants to have at least fifteen million euros for Meunier and it is reported that Barcelona is not willing to go beyond ten million euros.
Barcelona wants to win an extra right-back before the end of the transfer period. César Azpilicueta was the dead candidate for this position for a long time, but the Spaniard decided to sign up with Chelsea. The priority for the right flank is now with Juan Foyth of Villarreal, but the Argentine has a surrender clause of 42 million euros in his contract. Due to this very expensive option, Barcelona has been transferred to the considerably cheaper Meunier.
