Lurking in the media this morning is the inference that a new right-back could be arriving at Old Trafford this summer.

According to the French media vehicle, lequipe, the Paris Saint-Germain defender Serge Aurier has notified his club that he wishes to leave this summer and join Manchester United.

The 24-year-old, an Ivory Coast international, is said to be linked to a move to Old Trafford with a fee of the magnitude of £17 million being mentioned.

Aurier is something of a colourful character having been refused entrance to the United Kingdom, for a Champions League fixture against Arsenal, after being given a suspended sentence last year for attacking a policeman outside a night-club.

If the speculation is true, Aurier would be a valuable addition to the squad and give Antonio Valencia competition for the slot on the right side of the defence.

If we hear anything further we`ll endeavour to report back.

But what are your views on the potential signing of Serge Aurier, does it give you positive vibes?
