Paris Saint-Germain have entered the race for Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri just to “f*** Barca”, according to the player’s agent Franklin Mala.
The Ligue 1 giants and Barcelona have come face-to-face in a number of negotiations this summer with Neymar joining PSG in a world-record deal, while the Catalan side reportedly tried to force the French club to sell Marco Verratti.
And Barcelona are still on the hunt for a central midfielder this transfer window with reports claiming that Seri is now on their list of targets.
Nice failed to qualify for the Champions League this week and Seri’s future could be resolved sooner rather than later but PSG are looking to land the midfielder – according to the Ivorian’s agent.
“It was possible to reach an agreement as Barcelona and Nice were negotiating,” Mala told RAC1.
“On Tuesday, they were in France, talking about technical aspects but they already knew Seri’s capabilities.
“PSG came three days ago. Now PSG is putting pressure on the club to take the player, it’s crazy. They just want to do it to f*** Barca.”
