Serge Aurier will soon play for PSG, the negotiation is moving forward. The 24-year-old player was transferred to Tottenham on July 30, 2017, for a sum of €25 million. In the 2020/2021 Premier League season he attended 19 games out of the 36. His team could count on two goals and three assists. The contract of Serge Aurier ends in June 2022.
Alessandro Florenzi is likely to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season. He has not been able to satisfy Moriccio Pochettino during a disappointing season. According to PSG managers, Serge Aurier would be his perfect replacement. The 24-year-old player is therefore one of the targets of Paris for the summer Mercato. Internally, Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Mauricio Pochettino are working to accelerate negotiations with the right-back of Tottenham.
Serge Aurier has already played for PSG between 2014 and 2017. During this period, he was very popular with Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and already knew Mauricio Pochettino. Despite the rumors very advanced, the PSG coach said he preferred to focus on the end of the season for now.
“I do not think this is the time to talk about players playing in other clubs. This is not the time to do it today. We must achieve our goals and finish the championship. The club will make the best decision, as always and as every club, to improve the team.” – Mauricio Pochettino coach of Paris Saint-Germain.
Serge Aurier at PSG, the rumor becomes reality
PSG is indeed moving up a gear for Serge Aurier. Nasser Al-Khelaïfi and Mauricio Pochettino have been in contact with the Ivorian to discuss a return to PSG during the summer of 2021. Serge Aurier is one year from the end of his contract with Tottenham and has already expressed several times his desire to explore other championships.
However, PSG is not exempt from changing its mind. It could be that Paris does not rely on him to strengthen its team. In addition, PSG may wish to focus on very large contracts in the summer Mercato. The club might then have to be careful with the transfer budget. Paris has already extended the contract of Neymar which will not allow him to make big expenses this summer.
A few days ago, Serge Aurier chose to separate from his previous agent. He is now with Vadim Vasilyev. He also manages Mouctar Diakhaby (Valencia), Fabien Centonze (FC Metz), Farid Boulaya (FC Metz).
