Chelsea beats Man Utd & Everton to agree to sign Ligue 1 star for €30m

Premier League clubs Everton, Manchester United and Chelsea are all in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier this coming summer.

Chelsea was reported to be linked with a move for the defender from the French club last month, a week later Manchester United also joined and now reports from French outlet claims that the Toffees have entered the race to sign the Belgian.

The report claims that the Merseysider club are very keen on signing the defender and are ready to beat the Red Devils and the Blues to his signature, ahead of the summer transfer window.

The 27-year-old right back, who has a price tag of €30 million, has maminly been used as a backup option in the Thomas Tuchel team so far gone this season, being able to register 20 League appearance in the French League.

Everton is reported to be keen on signing the Belgium international this summer following the inconsistency Seamus Coleman and Jonjoe Kenny has been putting up throughout the season.

Chelsea have a notable players in the position Meunier plays, and yet will still be pushing the race to sign the defender.

Throughout the season, Cesar Azpilicueta has been deployed in the right flank of the defence with Italian Davide Zappacosta being his backup.

Reece James is set to return to Chelsea at the end of the season after a successful loan spell with Championship club Wigan Athletic, he plays in the right-back position.

With this in mind, Chelsea might not be desperate to sign Meunier come summer which should open a door for Everton and Manchester United in their race to acquire the signature of the Belgian.
