Manchester City will battle with Manchester United for the signature of Jean Michael Seri this month.
The Ligue 1 star is expected to depart Nice before the end of the transfer window and both Manchester clubs are in the race to sign him. Seri has been watched by United all season.
Meanwhile, City are desperate to add to their line-up after missing out on Alexis Sanchez. City are desperate to gain revenge over United and Pep Guardiola is keen to beat Jose Mourinho to Seri.
Nice are believed to be looking for a fee in the region of £35million for the 26-year-old.
Seri’s representatives are believed to be ready to fly to Manchester and negotiate with both clubs. Should City wrap up a deal for Seri, it will mark a positive transfer window after an initially rocky start.
