Manchester United are certain not to come-off the transfer window until one more player is signed.
While the transfer Neymar Jnr from Barcelona headlined the media wave last week, Paris Saint Germain are looking to balance their books and this will involve the sale of some of their players including Man United target Serge Aurier.
Speculation was stirred last week that Serge Aurier had agreed personal terms to join Manchester United, with the deal being subject to the player’s court hearing after he allegedly assaulted a Police officer. While, the speculations linking the star with a move to United has gradually reduced, French newspaper L’Equipe now claims Aurier hopes to seal United deal before the close of the window.
Aurier has been banned from entering the UK and unless a work permit is granted him, he will be unable to play in the Premier League. This has been the major stumbling block to his move. His court hearing is scheduled for today and Man United manager Jose Mourinho may just be on the look out for the outcome of his appeal against his prison sentence.
Paris Saint Germain already signed a replacement for Serge Aurier in Dani Alves but United are not the only club now interested in the player. Italian outlet Tuttosport claim Inter Milan are also in his chase but this may see Man United speed up move for the star.
Jose Mourinho wants one more player to be signed before the window closes and he prefers a right winger, with Aurier now emerging as a top target for the Red Devils.
