Spurs Chairman In Direct Contact With PSG For Manchester United Linked Defender

Paris Saint-Germain defender, Serge Aurier, has agreed personal terms with Tottenham Hotspur, according to L'Equipe.

The Ivory Coast worldwide has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent weeks with Manchester United and Chelsea touted as potential destinations for the defender.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was reportedly after an African star from Paris Saint-Germain, but new reports suggest the player's future could lie elsewhere.

With Leonardo Bonucci having moved to AC Milan, a new defender is among their No 1 priority.

However, following the departure of Kyle Walker to Manchester City, if Aurier were to choose North London rather than Manchester, he could expect to be the first choice right back.

Aurier is expected to leave the Parc des Princes following the arrival of Dani Alves from Juventus and he was left out of PSG's pre-season plans in order to negotiate a move away from the club.

Aurier himself needs to move on this summer, having now become PSG's third-choice right back behind Thomas Meunier and new signing Dani Alves, and the Ivorian worldwide appears to be in demand having not only shown his quality with PSG, but also with Toulouse before his 2014 move to French capital.

The player also caused a stir a year ago when he celebrated a goal for his country with a throat-slitting gesture, and in the season before last, he verbally attacked former PSG boss Laurent Blanc in a social media rant.

Fellow PSG right-back Thomas Meunier all but confirmed Aurier, 24, would be leaving the Ligue 1 side.
