Jose Mourinho is about sign his fourth player of the transfer window, thereby accomplishing the targets he set for the summer window, but there are a few complications to address before the deal gets completed.
Notably, Serge Aurier has a case open against him in UK, which had earlier prevented him from playing against Arsenal in last year’s Champions League fixture.
The Ivorian defender was booked for violence against police, as a consequence of which, he is banned from entering the region.
In order to complete his transfer to Manchester United, the player will now need to get clearance from a French court, where he has lodged an appeal. A final verdict is expected to be heard before next week.
Meanwhile, Manchester United have agreed a £90,000-a-week deal as personal terms with the player, and the Premier League outfit is also ready to pay £27 million to meet the valuation set on him by PSG.
Jose Mourinho has once again taken the help of his magic man Mino Raiola, who has presented some of his finest players to Manchester United. The super agent is believed to have acted as a facilitator of the agreement between the Red Devils and Aurier’s agent, Stephane Courbis.
Aurier knows that he has no future at PSG following the French giants’ capture of Dani Alves for free. Manchester United, on the other hand, are looking to use the full-back as a competition for Antonio Valencia next season, and a replacement for Ecuadorian in the long term.
