As per the latest reports, Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier has revealed that he rejected a move to Chelsea on deadline day of the summer transfer window.
The Belgian international saw his first-team chances take a blow at the Parc des Princes when the Ligue 1 giants brought in Dani Alves, and he has since been limited to only six French top flight starts so far this season.
However, the 26-year-old defender remains determined to fight for his place at the club and insists that he is happy in the French capital despite a lack of game time.
During his interview, Meunier told the reporters: “I was expecting PSG to sign another right-back, but didn’t foresee them getting Dani Alves. I didn’t know what to think. Was I going to remain on the subs’ bench all the time?”
“I could have left for Chelsea on the final day of the transfer window. But I didn’t want to join them. I am happy at PSG and I don’t want to leave.”
The Blues instead signed Davide Zappacosta on deadline day, with the Italian going on to start three of their last four games due to the absence of Victor Moses.
