FootMercato: Milan joined by PSG and Real Madrid in race for cut-price Spurs defender

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face competition from two top European clubs if they are to land Spurs full-back Serge Aurier this summer, a report claims.

Calciomercato.com reported that Aurier has once again become a target for Frederic Massara and Paolo Maldini who sought him last summer, and negotiations with Tottenham were well underway but failure to sell Andrea Conti meant that the deal was never done.

They added that Milan remained in contact with Aurier’s agents who informed them of Tottenham’s desire to sell once the window reopens, and Spurs have significantly lowered their demands to €10m.

FootMecato confirms that PSG are interested in bringing Aurier back to PSG once the window reopens with Mauricio Pochettino ready to convince him to return to the French capital. However, the source also reports that for Aurier there could also be the possibility of Real Madrid making a move, even though at the moment talks on that front are at an early stage.

    Most likely just a rumour as calabria as recently mentioned is the back with most tackles in serie a so let me ask this, why would milan actually aquirre a player like Serge Aurier soon to be 29
    and who most likely would demand a salary in the vicinity of 3 mil a year and cost 10 mil + signon fee to play second fiddle to the italian ?

      Agreed Calabria is undisputed 1st choice, is a milanista and still young. We don’t need an expensive backup RB, with Kalulu looking promising and if we sign a top class RW, then even Saelamaekers could cover at RB.

      If anything we could do with a reliable LB backup for Theo. The Aurier rumor is a non starter imho

      1. Martin Bernhard says:

        Yeah fully agree and we havent been able to sell conti either yet so it doesnt really make any sense to buy aurier. When that is said i wouldnt be too surprised if we endup signing hysaj on a free transfer who can play on both sides that transfer would make far more sense obviously depending on his demands as he would be able to cover theo on the left flank and maybe also let kalulu get consistant time in another serie team on a year long loan. Thats atleast a scenraio i could see happen so the young frenchman can keep developing.

    Pierre Kalulu is enough for RB 2nd choices, he is growing.
