The move raises eyebrows over Jose Mourinho’s tactics, as the current right back at United, Antonio Valencia, was not so recently called as the best in the world by the boss.
However, one can see Aurier, with his aggression, verbal battling, and rampaging runs up and down the flanks, overtake Luke Shaw’s position at left-back, as the latter has been heavily criticised by Mourinho in recent weeks.
The 24-year-old, playing in Paris, has been an attraction for many clubs around Europe, and with Antonio Valencia well set in his position, it is highly unlikely the player will make a move to a club knowing he might have to adjust to the role of being a backup defender.
The price tag for this assumed deal is reported to be in and around £25 million, which seems to be fair for a young defender waiting to deliver on the biggest stages in world football.
The transfer might be boosted with the fact that PSG might not be too hesitant to let go off the player, who in recent seasons, due to his bad behaviour and loud mouth both on and off the pitch, has faced suspensions and bans and brought unwanted negative attention to the French club.
United are currently under a heavy rebuilding phase with the Portuguese genius in charge, and though the move seems unlikely, one can never really tell.
