Man Utd in contact with PSG over move for right-back

Manchester United have reportedly made contact with PSG over a potential move for right-back Serge Aurier.

The defender’s future has become unclear after the French giants snapped up veteran Brazilian Dani Alves on Wednesday.

French paper L’Equipe is reporting that Aurier told PSG boss Unai Emery that he wanted to leave at the end of last season and Alves’ arrival has seemingly forced his hand even further.

Right-back is not a position where United are struggling, given Antonio Valencia’s outstanding form last season, but Matteo Darmian’s future remains in question and that may prompt Jose Mourinho to make a move for the Ivory Coast star.

Aurier, who has been linked with Barcelona in the past, is said to favour a move to England or Italy while Tottenham are also reported to be an option if they allow Kyle Walker to move to Manchester City.
