Premier League Champions Chelsea are set to go head-to-head with Manchester United to capture the signature of Paris Saint-Germain full-back Serge Aurier.

The Manchester Club are favourites to land the Ivory Coast international and have been on his trail for the majority of the summer.

However, Chelsea are also in talks with PSG over a £27m deal for the 24-year-old, according to The Express.

Unfortunately for both clubs however, the highly-rated defender does not come without his drama.

He is currently banned from entering the UK after an incident where he allegedly assaulted a police officer, although an appeal was made on his behalf and the player attended court yesterday.

The incident is not expected to cause an issue to his potential move away from Ligue 1 and United manager Jose Mourinho is still confident of bringing him to Old Trafford.

Mail Sport are reporting that both United and Chelsea are set to make bids for the combative right-back, which will mean the decision will rest firmly with the player.

With just a few weeks left of the transfer window, both Mourinho and Antonio Conte look to get these deals over the line.
