The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are still celebrating their side’s latest announcement…
After a couple of quiet weeks, Man Utd’s transfer business finally returned to the foreground yesterday, with the Red Devils finally confirming a deal for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic, with the Serbian moving to Old Trafford on a three-year deal.
It appears as though the Man Utd fans in the pub could have more to celebrate this summer, though, with Miguel Delaney confirming on Twitter that another Man Utd move ‘should happen’ shortly.
When questioned on PSG defender Serge Aurier, Delaney responded by saying that a £25 million move is in place to take the defender to Man Utd and should be completed soon pending a successful visa application.
Yeah. it's true, should happen pending Visa issues, 25m

Aurier has impressed for PSG in recent years, but with the French side reportedly set to land Neymar in a world-record move, perhaps they are looking to cash in.
Their loss could certainly be Man Utd’s gain, though, with Aurier exactly the sort of player that the Red Devils need – with Antonio Valencia not cut out as a long-term solution on the right-hand side of the Man Utd defence.
Aurier brings the perfect balance of attack and defence to the PSG defence, and he will leave a big gap in the French side’s back line.
Aurier has became known for his antics off the field, but if anyone can put him on the straight and narrow it is Jose Mourinho – so this could be a match made in heaven for all parties.
With a deal close, the champagne is on ice in the Transfer Tavern.
