Speaking in an interview with Téléfoot, Belgian right-back and PSG man Thomas Meunier revealed that he turned down a host of Premier League clubs before joining the Ligue 1 champions in the summer.
“I had a choice between six or seven clubs that were really serious with their offers. Most of them came from England: West Ham, Middlesbrough, there was Tottenham at one point. In Italy, there was Napoli, where I was truly very close to signing. And then, finally, PSG entered into the race and statistically I had a great chance of making it in the Champions League with them than with Napoli.”
