Born in Sainte-Ode, Belgium, Meunier began playing for various youth teams, starting with RUS Saint-Ode, RUS Givry and Standard Liège, which he spent two seasons before being released over injuries. After being released by Standard Liège, Meunier revealed that his release affected him, which at one point, he was considered quitting but his mother persuaded him not to do it, saying 'No, football is your life: you just have to play football', and called a trainer at Virton for a trial. At the trial, Meunier impressed the club’s management, winning 15–3 and Meunier, himself, scored ten goals in the game, leading him to for the club. His move to Virton led him to start his professional football career there.
Growing up, Meunier idolised Brazil World Cup winner Ronaldo, saying: "He evolves, like me, at the center forward position. I liked his style of play and his hooks". He said in an interview that he supported Anderlecht growing up, but this turns out to be incorrect. However, he revealed that he didn’t have an easy childhood: his parents divorced when he was a teenager and started a new life with his mother and sister. While at Virton, Meunier worked at the car factory as part time and postman and received a diploma once he finished school. Outside of football, he’s also a fan of art. He also opened a catering business in his hometown of Bastogne and has thought about becoming a baker once his football career is over.
Meunier was selected to Belgium's final 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He was Belgium's first-choice right midfielder and played his first World Cup match, in a 3–0 win over Panama in their opening group game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In a next match against Tunisia on 23 June 2018, Meunier set up a goal for Romelu Lukaku, who scored his second goal of the game, in a 5–2 win to qualify for the Round of 16. He then played another role when he set up for Nacer Chadli to score in injury time to lift Belgium to a 3–2 victory over Japan in the round of 16 of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. However, after a 2–1 win over Brazil on 6 July 2018, he received another booking, which caused him to miss a match in the semi–finals. On 14 July 2018, Meunier returned from suspension, scoring the opening goal of the match for Belgium in a 2–0 victory against England in their third-place play-off, his nation's best ever World Cup finish.
During the summer transfer window of 2017, Meunier was the subject of a transfer when Premier League side Chelsea tried to sign him on the transfer window deadline day but had their bid rejected by PSG. At the start of the 2017–18 season, Meunier played his first competitive match of the season by starting as the right–back, in the 2–1 win over AS Monaco in the 2017 Trophée des Champions. Even after Aurier’s departure to Tottenham Hostpur, he still competed for the right–back position with the just-recruited Dani Alves.
Having been an unused substitute for PSG's previous two league matches (against Guingamp and Toulouse), Meunier finally made his first league appearance of the season, replacing Dani Alves and then setting up a goal for Edinson Cavani, in a 3–0 home win over Saint-Étienne on 25 August 2017. It was not until 30 September 2017 when he scored his first goal of the season for the club, in a 6–2 league home win over Bordeaux. On 14 October 2017, Meunier scored both of PSG's goals in another league match, in a 2–1 win at Dijon. Between late–October and mid–December, he played two times in the league despite being featured on the substitute bench and picking up an injury he sustained while playing for the national side.
On 13 December 2017, Meunier started in the right–back position and assisted two goals, in a 4–2 win over RC Strasbourg. A month later, on 30 January 2018, Meunier scored again in the semi-finals of Coupe de la Ligue, in a 3–2 win over Stade Rennais. He then scored his fourth goal of the season, in a 5–0 win over FC Metz on 10 March 2018. Towards the end of the 2017–18 season, he regained his right–back position in number of matches when Alves was absent from the first team, due to injury and suspension. On 8 May 2018, he came off the bench as PSG won 2–0 against Les Herbiers VF to clinch the Coupe de France. Meunier also won his first league title at PSG after beating Monaco on 15 April 2018. At the end of the 2017–18 season, he went on to make 34 appearances and scoring 5 times in all competitions.
Over the 2016 summer transfer window, Meunier was a transfer target for several clubs, with Paris Saint-Germain leading the chase to sign him. But in early June, he made it clear that he was going to stay at the club. Despite his claim that he intended to stay at Club Brugge, he continued to be a transfer target.
On 3 July 2016, Paris Saint-Germain announced that Meunier had just joined PSG on a four-year deal that would tie him to the club until 30 June 2020. The transfer fee was reported to be 7 million euros. Prior to the move, Meunier admitted having doubts moving to Paris Saint-Germain, citing a possible lack of playing time there.
In the 2016 International Champions Cup friendly match against Real Madrid in Ohio, Thomas Meunier scored twice to help PSG to a 3–1 win.
On 6 August 2016, Meunier made his first competitive appearance for PSG by coming on as a substitute for David Luiz in the 76th minute of the 2016 Trophée des Champions. After being an unused substitute for PSG's first two league matches of the 2016–17 season, he made his league debut for the club and played 28 minutes in a 3–1 loss against AS Monaco on 28 August 2016. Since making his PSG debut, Meunier found himself competing with Serge Aurier throughout the season and due to good performances by Aurier, he often appeared on the substitute bench.
After suffering a knee injury in late September, Meunier returned to the first team, starting the whole game in the right back position and scoring a goal, in a 2–0 league home win over Bordeaux on 1 October 2016. On 1 November 2016, Meunier assisted Blaise Matuidi's opening goal and scored the winning goal with a stunning 90th-minute side-footed curling volley in PSG's 2–1 away win over Basel in a 2016–17 UEFA Champions League Group A match; it was Meunier's first competitive goal for PSG. As a result of his good performance, he was named a member of the UEFA Team of the Week.
A month later, on 21 December 2016, Meunier scored his first league goal for the club, in a 5–0 win over Lorient. However, the next two months saw him sidelined with injuries on two separate occasions. Despite this, Meunier received more playing time throughout January 2017 as a right–back because Aurier had to play for his national team in the finals of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations. The following month, he played the whole 90 minutes and set up a goal for Edinson Cavani, in a 4–0 win over Barcelona in the last 16 first leg of the 2016–17 UEFA Champions League. "We played the perfect match. Everyone was really looking forward to it, I have not seen that this season," he said right after that match. However, Meunier conceded a penalty and PSG lost 6–1 to Barcelona in the second leg; PSG were thus eliminated from the competition 6–5 on aggregate. "This is unacceptable. We had to start the race in a quieter way. That is what PSG lacks. Finding an explanation is difficult," Meunier said.
Towards the end of the 2016–17 season, Meunier continued to compete for a first team place with Aurier. He suffered injuries on two separate occasions for the second time this season. Although he featured in both the Coupe de la Ligue and Coupe de France campaigns, Meunier did not play in both of the finals; he was on the substitute bench for the former and missed the latter because of an injury sustained. During the 2016–17 season, he made a total of 36 appearances and scored 2 times in all competitions.
After being called to the squad for the Euro 2016, Meunier played the whole 90 minutes at right back in the UEFA Euro 2016 group stage and then set up a goal for Axel Witsel, in a 3–0 win over Republic of Ireland, keeping a clean sheet. He also kept another clean sheet in 90 minutes at right back in another victory over Sweden four days later. He also started in Belgium's 4–0 round of 16 win against Hungary. Meunier finished the UEFA Euro 2016 campaign, making five appearances for the side.

On 31 August 2017, Meunier recorded his first career senior international hat-trick in Belgium's 9–0 defeat of Gibraltar, a match in which he also recorded four assists. On 7 October 2017, he scored the opening goal of Belgium's 4–3 defeat of Bosnia and Herzegovina to end the 2018 World Cup qualifying campaign with five goals and seven assists from eight matches.

Meunier was signed by Club Brugge from Belgian Third Division team Virton in January 2011 for a transfer fee of 200,000 euros, with the actual transfer to be completed during the 2011 summer transfer window. A few days earlier, Club Brugge had just missed out on the transfers of Dalibor Veselinović and Jelle Van Damme and therefore wanted to make sure Meunier would not become the third near miss.
