I am not very familiar with the TU engine, but the starter will be at the flywheel end of the engine, maybe at the back.

There is probably no starter relay on that car, the solenoid being directly connected to the ignition switch.

Will the car jump-start from a second battery/vehicle?

Check the main battery connectors. Remove them, and clean up the battery posts and connector surface. Replace dry (no vaseline) and try cranking again. If either connector gets warm while trying to crank, they should be replaced. Check also the battery -ve cable where it connects to engine block and body.

Also try running a temporary cable from batt+ to the solenoid connection (NOT the main large battery power cable) on the starter motor. If this allows the starter motor to crank, the fault is with the ignition switch.

The only way to start the car is to push it with second gear. After I will try a friend’s battery to make sure but with cables nothing happens. I still hear only the click and the motor can’t move.

Give me a second .

5802 M9 is the part number — there are many brands of suitable Starter motors given that your car is 28 years old.

Available second hand here (I appreciate you are in Greece and that there isn’t an eBay in Greece)
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Peugeot-206- . 2056002214

But search on that part number and you should get plenty of options. I can’t see any relay
