Paris Saint-Germain right-back Thomas Meunier has revealed that he knocked back advances from Chelsea despite facing competition from Dani Alves for the right-back spot. The Belgium international had expected competition from a new signing in the summer but was surprised by the club's decision to sign Dani Alves on a free transfer.
Speaking with Eleven Sports, he said, "I was expecting the arrival of a right-back but not that of Dani. I did not know what to think. Was I only going to be a substitute? I could have left for Chelsea on the final day of the summer transfer window but I did not."
