Barcelona poised to land Borussia Dortmund right-back Thomas Meunier

Borussia Dortmund veteran right-back has emerged as a surprise target for Barcelona in the summer transfer window.

Spanish source claim that Barcelona are poised to land Borussia Dortmund star Thomas Meunier.

The 31-year-old has been with Borussia Dortmund since 2020, having signed for the club from Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer. His current deal expires in 2024.

Since his arrival from Paris Saint-Germain, Meunier has scored 3 goals and provided 8 assists in 74 games for Dortmund, including one assist in 15 games in all competitions this season.

The 31-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Belgium. His record for Belgium is impressive. Meunier has scored 8 goals in 62 matches for Belgium at senior level.

The Belgium international is believed to be available for transfer, with Xavi now keen to bring him to Barcelona.

La Liga giants are looking to sign a right-back and have identified the 31-year-old as potential transfer target. The report claims that Barcelona manager has extensively scouted Meunier and is considering a move for the right-back.

Xavi is a long term admirer of Thomas Meunier and believes he can get the most out of the Belgium international.


The former Paris Saint-Germain man has been used as a right-back as well as a wing-back for Borussia Dortmund so far. He is comfortable playing out from the back and given Xavi’s demands, that would fit in perfectly with his tactics.

According to the report, “Barcelona are eyeing Borussia Dortmund defender Thomas Meunier. Barça have a long list of possible full-back options for the summer market and the one who always remains is the Belgian defender Meunier, says Sport. He could leave Dortmund at a very affordable price, he is the ideal age to give two years of good performance, he wants to come and both the sporting and personal reports are excellent. Barca coach Xavi has concerns about his fullback options and Meunier is considered a serious solution. The experienced Belgian can also play in midfield when needed.”

If Barcelona can agree on a fee with Borussia Dortmund, the deal should be easy to complete.

The German giants will be ready to part ways with the right-back should the right offer arrives.

Good signing for Barcelona?

If Thomas Meunier is available for the right price, then he could be a clever acquisition for Barcelona.

Meunier has all the skillset required to be a success story at Barcelona. Therefore, it makes sense for Xavi to step up his attempts to bring the Belgium right-back to La Liga side.

It will be interesting to see whether Barcelona will make their move during the summer transfer window.
