Chelsea and United could be set to do battle in the summer for the signing of Seri

Since moving to Nice, Seri has managed to impress fans and critics alike with his high levels of performances.

Since his move from Pacos D Ferreira in the summer of 2015, the Ivory Coast international has managed to clock up a total of 11 goals and assists in 117 appearances.

Last season, the midfielder shone for Nice, as he bagged seven goals and 10 assists in 34 league appearances as the French side secured a top four finish.

If Chelsea and United are both serious about signing Seri, it’ll be interesting to see which club gets the better of the other in the race for the midfielder.
