Serge Aurier Agrees to Five Year Deal at Man United, Claim French Reports



Paris Saint-Germain right back Serge Aurier has reportedly ‘reached a provisional 5-year contract agreement’ with Manchester United. The deal isn’t done yet, but it’s supposedly getting very close. If and when it’s completed, United Manager Jose Mourinho will then have that fourth player he’s openly pined for this summer transfer window.

British media are picking up on a report that originated in France.


Having already conceded defeat in the pursuit of both Ivan Perisic and Gareth Bale, Mourinho and United seem to be moving on to closing Serge Aurier now.

The Daily Star writes that: “French reporter Loic Tanzi, who works for Goal France and Eurosport, claims Aurier’s move to Manchester is now edging closer. He wrote on Twitter: “S.Aurier and MU have found an agreement around a 5-year contract. Rest to negotiate with Paris and have a work permit #PSG”

The defender has of course been “plagued by controversy” and dealt with “off the pitch” issues during his time at Paris. Here’s a link to much more on that. Aurier brings a fair amount of baggage to consider, but it’s not apparently hurting his value in the transfer market. In addition to United, the 24-year-old Ivory Coast International has also been targeted by Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan among others.
