After signing Romelu Lukaku from under their noses, Manchester United are set to battle it out with Chelsea again for the signature of another transfer target.
Paris St Germain defender Serge Aurier is the subject of interest from the Premier League duo.
Manchester United turned to Aurier after failing to sign Fabinho from Monaco. Jose Mourinho is looking for a new full back, as he has just Antonio Valencia in his possession right now. But he is aware of Valencia’s injury troubles and wants adequate cover for him.
Aurier has fallen down the pecking order this season as PSG signed Dani Alves from Juventus. The French club is looking to offload some of their players to offset the bill of signing Neymar from Barcelona.
Aurier has had a controversial time with PSG, he was banned from playing a match against Chelsea two seasons ago after the London Police discovered he had assaulted a police officer in France. It is unclear if that would affect his chances of playing in England this season.
Aurier would cost £27 million and Chelsea is desperate to sign him especially after missing out on Danilo who joined Manchester City instead.
