Aurier joined Premier League club Tottenham from Ligue 1 outfit PSG in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £23 million.
The 24-year-old right-back has revealed that he would liked to stay at PSG.
"I’m conscious [of what I did],” Aurier told RMC Sport, as translated by Football.London. “I’m intelligent, even if sometimes it doesn’t seem that way. I’ve always made important and interesting choices in my career.”
“After a while, you become aware that things are difficult for the kids who watch us and are our fans. Of course I would have liked to stay at PSG.
“It’s the club of my heart. I come from Sevran. I’m from Paris. There’s nothing better than playing for the club you love.”
One can understand why Aurier would have wanted to remain at PSG. The right-back developed well during his time at the Parisian club and was playing well, but off-pitch controversies did not help his cause.
The Ivory Coast international right-back told EPSN in November that there was a chance for him to join Barcelona.
According to The Daily Mail, United are confident that they will be able to secure the services of the England international left-back in the January transfer window or next summer.
“They’d back Mauricio because of what he is doing and the project,” The Sport Review quotes Wright as saying about Rose.
