With his current contract at PSG expiring in June, Belgium international Thomas Meunier has spoken candidly about his future - with his habitual frankness.

Where will Thomas Meunier play next season? The Belgian international's contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in June and he has not yet been offered a second contract.

His name has been coming up in connection with Borussia Dortmund over the past few weeks but, without explicitly denying a link, the right-sided defender has remained rather unclear on the possibilities for his future - but has done so frankly.

'Stay at PSG'

"Everything that is circulating about me on social networks in relation to Dortmund, I don't understand. I've also seen so many articles linking me to Tottenham or Inter. I don't understand this craze!" he exclaimed. "My main objective is still to stay at PSG, but for the moment it's pretty quiet."

Meunier has always had stiff competition for a starting place since his arrival in the French capital to replace Gregory Van der Wiel in the summer of 2016 - notably from Dani Alves - but has been a fantastic servant for the club, with solid work ethic and a never-say-die attitude - as well as some crucial goals.

'Clubs don't have much to lose'

"A free agent, who is an international and plays for the world's number one-ranked team in the FIFA rankings and who is 28 years old, can't be a bad buy," Meunier told French-language Belgian radio station RTBF. "Even if I get gangrene and have to cut off my leg! Clubs don't have much to lose in terms of investment, and I think they know that. They have everything to gain."
