Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund have signed Belgian international Thomas Meunier for the 2020/21 season. The 28-year-old is making the move from French champions Paris St. Germain and has signed a contract with BVB until 30 June 2024.
“Thomas Meunier is a player who has proven his quality at the highest level, among other things in the Champions League and in the national team, over a long period of time and will give us a real boost with his experience,” said sporting director Michael Zorc.
Meunier started his professional career at Club Brugge, where he won the Belgian league and cup. In 2016, he moved to Paris St. Germain in France. With the top French club, Meunier won the cup twice (2017, 2018) and the league three times (2018, 2019, 2020). The defender has made 17 appearances in the UEFA Champions League (3 goals), most recently in the last-16 game against Borussia Dortmund. The Belgian international, who will move to the Strobelallee on a free transfer, brings the experience of 40 international matches (7 goals) to BVB.
“Borussia Dortmund play exactly the type of football I want to play: exciting, authentic and natural. BVB are known for their enthusiastic fans, and the atmosphere during the match with Paris at the SIGNAL IDUNA PARK influenced my decision if I’m honest. I am ambitious and I want to win titles with Dortmund, as I have done in Brugge and Paris,” said Meunier, who will link up his national teammates Axel Witsel and Thorgan Hazard at Borussia Dortmund.
