Paris Saint Germain defender Serge Aurier has reportedly said he would rather join Manchester United than go to Chelsea, according to French newspaper L’Equipe.
Both Chelsea and Manchester United have been interested in the full-back all summer, and with the signing of Dani Alves, it looks like Aurier wants a move away.
Manchester United are now the front-runners to sign the Ivorian, after his reported preference, that he’d rather link up with Mourinho.
It has been reported that United have already agreed personal terms with Aurier however no fee has yet been agreed.
He is currently on a ban which prohibits him entering the United Kingdom, however he is set to learn the outcome of his appeal today.
If the appeal is successful, then a deal could be struck sooner rather than later.
It will mean another target Chelsea have missed out on, with Alex Sandro the main man they want, but Juventus are holding firm that he is not for sale.
