Yes, we know, and we’re not quite sure if we believe it earlier, but there is a rumour on social media that Manchester United have agreed a deal for Paris right back Serge Aurier.
Despite having what Jose Mourinho has claimed to be ‘the best right back in the world’ in Antonio Valencia, there is the suggestion that United need to boost that area with a quality young back-up. Earlier this summer it was suggested that Fabinho, the Monaco utility man, might be a target due to United’s need for a holding midfielder, but Mourinho’s signing of a specialist in that position means defensive re-inforcements are still necessary.
And so Aurier — who is not allowed to enter the UK until August 7th for legal reasons — is rumoured by an account ‘ParisUnited6’ to have agreed terms with the Old Trafford club.
[Info Paris U] L’accord entre #Aurier et Man U repose sur un contrat de 5 ans et un salaire compris entre 4,5M€ – 5M€/an. Procès le 07/08.
[Info Paris U] The agreement between #Aurier and Man U is based on a 5-year contract and a wage between 4.5M € – 5M € / year. Trial on 07/08.
So, what do you think? Will Aurier become the fourth player to sign for the club?
