Manchester United have stepped up their efforts to sign Nice midfielder, Jean Michael Seri, as Paul Pogba has fallen out with manager Jose Mouirnho.
The Mirror reports thats Seri’s box-to-box style is “the type of which Mourinho spoke at length recently when discussing Pogba and what traits the modern-day midfielder must embody.”
Pogba has started from the substitutes’ bench twice in United’s past four matches, as his relationship with Mourinho becomes increasingly strained.
It is understood that if the pair cannot resolve their differences this summer, the 24-year-old could leave Old Trafford for the second time in his career.
Seri, a 26-year-old Ivory Coast international, has a £35million buyout clause and United sent scouts to monitor his play in a Europa League match earlier this month.
