United Lead the Chase for Ivory Coast International
Elsewhere on the transfer front, whilst also remaining in Europe, speculation has emerged today that Manchester United are in pole position to sign a highly rated midfielder.
According to the popular red-top publication, The Mirror, Manchester United could well be signing Jean-Michael Seri.
Seri is a much sought-after player having been linked with Barcelona in the summer in a move that never materialised.
However, this transfer window has seen a trio of Premier League clubs, according to our referenced source, keen to acquire his services with the trio being Liverpool, Chelsea and ourselves.
Seri, just 26-years-of-age, is an Ivory Coast international who is on the books of the French club Nice and who could add something extra to the Manchester United squad.
Hopefully, our red-top source will have gotten its information right and Seri will be signing on the dotted line any day now, I for one, would welcome his addition to the squad.
