Man United agree personal terms with defender: How will he fit in Jose Mourinho’s team?


According to The Sun, Manchester United have agreed personal terms with PSG defender Serge Aurier but the move is yet to be confirmed because the Ivorian has some legal issues which might prevent him from entering the UK. After the signing of Dani Alves, PSG have let Aurier find a new club for himself. Although, Aurier has had a controversial career so far, he has the talent to become one of the best right backs in Europe.

Manchester United already have Antonio Valencia and Matteo Darmian who can play as right backs in their squad. Although Valencia is 31 now, going by his last season’s performance, the Ecuadorian has at least a couple of years left at the highest level. So even if Aurier does sign for United, it is difficult to see him replace Valencia as the first choice right back. He would be a decent backup option for United and if his off-field issues are sorted out then he has a chance of establishing himself at Old Trafford as a first choice RB in the long run.

In the 2017/18 season, if Aurier signs for United in this transfer window, Mourinho would be likely be playing him in the initial stages of the domestic cups. Antonio Valencia, at times last season was overworked especially during the latter half of the campaign. Aurier coming in will give some rest to Valencia which will especially be useful if United are going to be part of the latter stages of the Champions League.
