Man United & PSG
It’s been a busy weekend for Twitter user @parisunited6.
Paris United is a well-known ITK for PSG, and he’s been busy posting updates linking the French moneybags and Man United.
The account has attracted almost 35,000 followers; a reflection of how the well regarded the social media user is.
Mourinho wants signings
Before Man United left their pre-season tour in America, Jose Mourinho made it clear he wants two new signings before the summer window shuts.
The Special One has so far added Victor Lindelof from Benfica and Romelu Lukaku from Everton.
On Sunday, a picture leaked out on social media revealing that Nemanja Matic is poised to be revealed as Man United’s latest addition.

The Chelsea midfielder has already been snapped in a Red Devils top.
And now it appears that United could be close to adding a new defender too, as PSG’s Serge Aurier has reportedly “agreed” to move to Old Trafford.
What’s the story?
On Saturday, Paris United announced that super-agent Mino Raiola has been used by Man United to deal with the agent of the Ivory Coast defender, Stephane Courbis.

The 24-year-old is under contract with PSG until 2019 but they’re said to be open to selling him. That’s after Dani Alves moved to the French capital from Juventus.
With Spurs also in the race for Aurier, PSG are though to be asking for 30 million pounds for the defender, who earns a reported €100,000-a-week at the Parc de Princes.

On Sunday, Paris United claimed that Aurier has “agreed” terms with United.
The ITK told his followers that Aurier seems to be on his way to the Premier League provided he can gain entry into the UK.
That’s an issue as, back in 2016, he was banned from travelling to the UK.
