Paris Saint-Germain defender Thomas Meunier says he wants to remain at the French champions beyond the end of this season, with his contract due to expire in the summer.

Meunier, 28, has won a pair of Ligue 1 titles since joining PSG from Club Brugge in 2016, and was part of the Belgium squad that finished third at the 2018 World Cup.

"Everyone knows that my main goal is to stay in Paris, but for the time being it's pretty quiet. We'll see between now and the end of the season," he told Belgian broadcaster RTBF. 

The versatile Meunier was quick to play down speculation of a rumoured move to Borussia Dortmund.

"I've seen as many articles linking me with Tottenham or Inter as with Dortmund," said Meunier, expressing his bemusement at the interest shown from fans of his potential suitors. "I don't understand this infatuation."

The French top flight was shut down on 13 March due to the coronavirus pandemic, with PSG 12 points clear of Marseille at the top of the table.

Thomas Tuchel's side have qualified for the quarter-finals of the Champions League, which has also been suspended indefinitely, and are through to the finals of both domestic cups.
