Will PSG actually spend $255 million to take Neymar from Barcelona?

PSG full-back Serge Aurier is nearing a move to Manchester United after it's been reported that the Ivorian has agreed personal terms with Jose Mourinho's side. 

The news is a result of @parisunited6, a reliable news source close to the club, tweeting that the two parties had agreed on a five-year contract with Auriers wages being in the region of €5m. 

The move has also been confirmed by the Independent's chief football writer Miguel Delaney, who tweeted that the switch would go ahead as long as Aurier could resolve his Visa issues, and that the deal would cost United £25m.

The 24-year-old is banned from entering the UK after he was found guilty of assaulting a police officer in Paris, and now must await the result of his appeal hearing before the transfer can be completed. 

Aurier leaving PSG doesn't come as a surprise after the recent signing of Dani Alves from Italian champions Juventus. 

The right back, who has previously been a target of Arsenal, hasn't had the best time in the French Capital, having to share his playing time with Gregory van der Wiel and Thomas Meunier since he joined in 2014.

He also had major issues with former PSG manager in 2016, when the Ivorian aimed homophobic slurs towards his ex-boss whilst doing a question and answer session on Periscope.
