Manchester United in advanced talks with Serge Aurier

Premier League side Manchester United are in advanced talks with PSG right-back Serge Aurier, according to Ivorian website Sportmania and carried this morning by L’Équipe.

José Mourinho is understood to have held several phone conversations with the Ivorian international that have even led to the former Toulouse man giving his agreement to join the club in principle this summer.

This alleged desire on the part of the player to move is likely to be met by strong resistance from PSG, notably Nasser Al Khelaifi who has taken a very personal liking to Aurier and has offered him a three year contract extension.

If he refuses to sign an extension, the French newspaper imagines that the player would be available for around €20m – hardly a convincing argument for PSG to sell.
