PSG defender Serge Aurier is set to put pen to paper on a five-year deal with Manchester United.

According to Goal, Aurier is on the verge of a move to Manchester United and will pen a long-term contract with the club.

The report claims that United are set to sign Aurier, who will be competing with Antonio Valencia to start as first-choice right-back next season.

There is one issue standing in the way. Aurier was refused entry into the country last season when PSG played Arsenal at The Emirates. This was due to an altercation he had with the police in France.

Aurier has appealed his entry to the UK and is hoping that he can complete the move as soon as possible.

Manchester United kick off their Premier League campaign this weekend, which appears to be too soon for Aurier to complete his move and feature.

There is no mention of a fee at this time.
