United eyeing winter swoop for Aurier

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly eyeing a winter approach for Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier. The full-back is currently assessing his position at Parc des Princes.

Aurier, 23, has had his off-field issues this season after he was found guilty for assaulting a policeman outside a nightclub in Paris for which he received a two-month prison sentence.

Les Parisiens have since appealed against the punishment, but the Ivory Coast international is still unsettled following the unfruitful incident in September.

Aurier's representatives were spotted holding talks with Barcelona over a proposed deal last month, but according to The Mirror, the Red Devils have joined the chase after they watched the right-back in action for his country against France in midweek.

Aurier, who was previously a transfer target for Arsenal, is valued in the £17m range.
