Spurs ready to accept over £ 10million loss as star talks to Pochettino
Posted On March 18, 2021
Tottenham right-back Serge Aurier has discussed a move to Paris Saint-Germain with Mauricio Pochettino, according to a report.
PSG boss Pochettino Has maintained close ties with his former club since taking office in January.
Indeed, the manager wanted to sign midfielder Dele Alli during the recent transfer window. However, Spurs president Daniel Levy has blocked the move.
According to Foot market, however, Pochettino also has a right-back Aurier on his radar.
Despite reports Claiming that PSG want to make Alessandro Florenzi’s loan to Roma permanent, Pochettino supposedly wants more options at the right-back.
As such, the Argentine is said to have discussed the player’s ‘sporting situation’ at Tottenham.
Pochettino went on to tell Aurier he wanted the Frenchman in his squad next season.
What else, Foot market reports that Tottenham would accept a € 12million (£ 10million) fee for his services.
Such a prize would represent more than £ 10million in losses to the player, who moved from PSG to north London for £ 23million (via BBC Sport) in the summer of 2017.
Aurier recently said Canal + that he wants to come back one day to the French giants.
He said: “I would like to finish in Paris because it’s my favorite club. For Paris, I would have liked a lot more love, there is a feeling of something unfinished.
“It’s been my club since I was little, it was a dream for me to finish in Paris and it’s not over. If I can finish my career in Paris, it would be a pleasure.
“I could have stayed there my whole career. I follow PSG from afar, but it remains my club and it will not budge.
Mourinho would have prepared for the exit of Aurier
Meanwhile, previous speculation has claimed that Spurs boss Jose Mourinho is set to lose Aurier.
That’s because he’s looking for a deal for Norwich full-back Max Aarons, which is seen as a long-term project by Tottenham.
Aarons are also said to be a target for Bayern Munich in this summer’s transfer window.
