Paris Saint Germain willing to let Manchester United target Serge Aurier leave – report

by Leo Nieboer

Paris Saint Germain are open to selling Manchester United target Serge Aurier if they can locate a replacement this summer, according to reports.

The 24-year-old, who arrived at PSG back in 2014, is keen on leaving the French side this summer following an underwhelming campaign under Unai Emery.

Mourinho has been in the market for a right back this summer, with Benfica’s Nelson Semedo emerging as a potential target as well.

And according to talkSPORT, PSG will consider letting the Ivorian leave the Parc de Princes this summer if they can find an adequate replacement in time.

Make no mistake, Mourinho needs to focus his efforts on securing a striker – preferably two – and a holding midfielder over the next month. That goes without saying.

But for all of Antonio Valencia‘s brilliance and current indispensability, the 54-year-old needs to look towards the future. Introducing another out and out right back – capable of both sharing the load with the Ecuadorian next season and eventually taking up the mantle once he does hang up his boots – is paramount for this summer as well.

And Aurier fits the bill perfectly: just 24, bombastic, devastatingly quick, confident, occasionally controversial and bound to improve over the next few years.
