An African star, who has been linked with Manchester United, has been warned by a former Premier League star to think about his options carefully before joining one of Europe's elite.
Former Leeds United and France midfielder Olivier Dacourt feels that Ivory Coast midfielder Jean Michael Seri should only move to a side like the Red Devils if he is certain that he will be first choice in his position.
"He almost went to Barcelona, but he did not leave," Dacourt told bwin.
"The problem with those quality players is that they are very good in major French clubs but now we are talking about big foreign clubs. Because of the competition in the big foreign clubs, it is necessary to see how they behave – personality is not enough.
"The point is not to go to the big club, it's to play there. A good example is Bernardo Silva. Last year he had an extraordinary season with Monaco – at Manchester City he has more trouble."
Seri, 26, has made 28 appearances for Nice this season, scoring one goal and assisting a further six strikes.
Do you think Seri would be an automatic starter should he move to United? Have your say in the comments section below.
