Man United interested in signing 24-year-old African full-back – report

Manchester United are considering joining Juventus in the race to sign Serge Aurier from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Tuttomercatoweb is claiming that the Red Devils are set to battle with Juventus for the signature of the 24-year-old Ivory Coast defender.

The same story quotes talkSPORT as claiming that Manchester United are interested in signing the defender as Jose Mourinho looks to sure up his rearguard options ahead of next season.

The article claims that Aurier looks set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer after refusing to sign a new deal with the Ligue 1 champions.

A move for Aurier would come as something of a surprise to Manchester United fans, who have already seen Mourinho move quickly to bolster his defensive options with the signing of Victor Lindelof this summer.

However, it seems that the Red Devils could be set to make a move for the right-back as Mourinho aims to add to his squad ahead of their return to the Champions League next season.

Manchester United finished sixth in the Premier League but won the EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign last season.
