Paris Saint-Germain defender, Serge Aurier, hopes to sign for Manchester United this summer, according to L’Equipe.
A development on his situation is expected this week as his appeal against a two-month prison sentence is being heard.
He was prevented from entering the UK to play Arsenal last November would not receive a working permit as it stands.
Ed Woodward has allegedly agreed terms with the Frenchman, but will need to sort the situation before a move will continue.
PSG aim to raise at least €50million in player sales and Mourinho’s chances of landing the right-back have been boosted.
They splashed €222m on Brazilian superstar Neymar last week and will need to balance the books to comply with FFP rules.
Reports claim they are willing to offload Aurier, as well as Grzegorz Krychowiak and Blaise Matuidi, which is why the Portuguese boss has been optimistic about his chances of signing the Frenchman.
A decision is expected to be made clear soon once his sentence has been heard and Mourinho could land his fourth signing after confirming he may be forced into signing only three players as Inter Milan play hardball over the services of Ivan Perisic.
