During his career with Tottenham Hotspur, Serge Aurier has on multiple occasions flirted with a return to PSG.
Joining Spurs in August 2017, the defender had departed Paris under something of a cloud and has seemingly wanted a return since. Whether via sources or directly, Aurier has made sure everyone knows PSG is the ‘club of his heart’ and that continues in an interview with L’Equipe.
The 28-year-old’s contract with Tottenham expires in June 2022, so this summer is the time for decision making and it’s apparent the player has already made his.
Speaking about his future, Aurier said: “If I wanted to extend at Tottenham I would have done so already.”
He insisted that won’t change in the coming months, although it’s not entirely clear whether the Premier League club have made any efforts to secure a new contract.
Specifically on PSG, he explained: “I have never hidden my desire to come back to PSG one day. This is my heart club, the one I support, I feel free to talk about it. But I don’t want people to think I’m kicking my foot out and closing the door on anyone. But if the club make a proposal this summer, PSG will be one of my top picks for sure.”
L’Equipe report Tottenham want €15m for a summer transfer.
As for PSG, they’re more interested in Inter Milan’s Achraf Hakimi, however, should that move fail it’s not inconceivable Leonardo would turn to Aurier as a cheap and easy deal to do.
