Man United could lose out on Serge Aurier with Inter Milan chasing

Inter battle United

A few short days ago, it was reported that Serge Aurier had agreed to join Manchester United. There haven’t been any further developments in that transfer story. That could be because these things take time.

Or perhaps it could be because Inter Milan have moved ahead of United in the race for Aurier’s signature.

Tuttosport claim that Paris Saint-Germain considers an Inter Milan offer a more attractive proposition. It goes without saying that the French club aren’t short of a few quid. So what they’re mainly interested in is a player.

PSG want Mario

Joao Mario, the Portugal international, moved to Inter for a big fee last summer after starring for his country in their Euro 2016 triumph. While Inter had a typically chaotic season, Mario maintained a decent level.

Ultimately, one would imagine that the final decision will come down to Aurier. This should be good news for United, who can offer higher wages and Champions League football to the right-back.
