Right-back Serge Aurier has agreed to join Manchester United, according to a report in France.

Aurier though will have to await a decision as to whether he can enter the UK to sign on the dotted line.

The Ivorian full-back is banned from entering the UK after being convicted of assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in Paris.

Aurier was stopped to take a breath test and got into an altercation in May 2016 and his appeal against the conviction has been scheduled for August 7 to determine whether or not his travel ban has been lifted.


Paris United reported last night that the 24-year-old has verbally given the green light to signing for Jose Mourinho and thing should be clearer later next month.

Aurier, who has been linked with United and Tottenham all summer, has recorded 19 assists over the past five seasons in Ligue 1, and has two years to run on his contract in Paris.

Aurier was refused permission by British authorities to travel to England for the Champions League match against Arsenal in November.

He was denied an entry visa because of his assault conviction.
