Meunier told DH: ‘I’ve always said that one day, I would like to play in the Premier League.
‘I’m very happy in Paris and if I finish my career there, it won’t be a disappointment, far from it. But, if one day, I had to leave Paris, why not?
‘On the other side of the channel, there are the stadiums, the fans, and I’ve never hidden that I’m a big fan of Manchester United, which remains, in my eyes, the real reference in the world of football.’
While Meunier may be dreaming of joining United, his current side are doing what those in the red half of Manchester can only dream of - running riot in the Champions League.
PSG all but booked their place in the quarter-finals on Tuesday night with a stunning 4-0 victory over Barcelona.
Meunier played the full 90 minutes as Angel Di Maria - whose own time at Manchester United was less dream than nightmare - inspired a famous night at Parc des Princes.
