Serge Aurier wants to rejoin PSG after his Tottenham stint

Sun 30 May 2021 | 19:09

The Ivory Coast international acknowledges that returning to Parc des Princes is his preferred preference, but he is not ruling out other options.

Serge Aurier

, a full-back for Tottenham Hotspur, has confirmed that he will leave the club this summer. 

The Ivory Coast international has been linked with a summer return to

Paris Saint-Germain

, although AC Milan and Spanish teams are also keen on him. 

Meanwhile, Aurier has stated that it is time for him to leave the Lilywhites. 

“Everyone is aware that if I wanted to extend my deal at Tottenham, I would’ve done so already. I’m not going to do it in six months,” the 28-year-old right-back told 



“I’ve reached the end of a cycle and it’s time to look elsewhere. The two parties, Tottenham’s board and my agents, have agreed upon the conditions. We’ll see after that.

“I’ve never hidden by desire to return to PSG one day. It’s the club of my heart, the one that I support and I feel free to speak about it.

“But I don’t want people to think that I’m stuck on them and I’m not closing the door on anyone.

“But if the club were to make an offer this summer, it’s sure that PSG would be my first choice.”

He might rejoin with former Tottenham manager

Mauricio Pochettino

if he returns to PSG, albeit the Argentine manager might depart this summer.

Aurier, on the other hand, claims that the two have an excellent connection and that Pochettino might prosper in the French city if he remains.

“We had a great relationship, despite what happened,” he said. “There was no serious problem between us but you are never the happiest player when you’re not on the pitch.

“I’ve always respected his work and his choices. I took pleasure in the style he wanted to play – and it’s the one he wants in Paris too.

“Physically, we were monsters. At PSG, we’ll really see his hand next season.”
