A tug-of-war is expected to take place across Manchester for the services of Jean Seri, the Nice midfielder who has earned comparisons with Andres Iniesta for his playmaking ability.
Although, it is believed the Ivorian has a release clause of £35 million and could be the subject of a three-way transfer battle between Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool also interested in signing the midfielder with both clubs keen on bolstering their squad in the summer.
The Ivorian worldwide was heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp last summer but the deal failed to materialise as the Catalan giants made a decision to pull plug on the deal having signed Brazilian midfielder, Paulinho from Chinese side, Guanzhou Evergrande.

Jean Michael-Seri was approached by FC Barcelona earlier this season but had their bid rejected by Nice's president.
But make no mistake, this is a player capable of lighting up games with his technical prowess and stealing him from under City's nose would a major sucker-punch.
