Report: Ivorian agrees to join Manchester United
L’Equipe on Wednesday printed a story about Manchester United and PSG full-back Serge Aurier. The report suggests that the 24-year-old is tempted after talks with Jose Mourinho.
It’s important to note that French newspaper L’Equipe haven’t broke the story as their own. Instead they’ve lifted it from Ivory Coast website Sportmania.
The Ivorian media outlet suggests Aurier has found an agreement with United, and is tired of the constant controversies that surround him at PSG.
You may ask how a story from Ivory Coast would hold much, if any substance but Aurier was born in the Ivory Coast before moving to France at a young age.
Also interesting is how Zlatan Ibrahimovic would feel about linking up with Aurier again.
In 2016 Aurier went live on Periscope to suggest that Laurent Blanc sucks the Swede before also issuing another slur regarding former Man United winger Angel Di Maria.
Mourinho is a huge fan of Antonio Valencia at right back but without back up or competition for the 31-year-old, it’s a position that remains light.
Signing another right back would be a good move for the United manager.
