Reports: Manchester United After African Star

English giants Manchester United are reportedly interested in an African star who is currently being chased by a number of European clubs.

According to Sky Sports, the Red Devils are keeping a close eye on Ivory Coast international and Nice star Jean Michael Seri.

The in-demand midfielder, who moved to the Ligue 1 club from Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira in 2015, was linked with a move to FC Barcelona at the beginning of the season, but the LaLiga side pulled out of the deal at the last minute.

Jose Mourinho is said to be impressed by the African's performances in Europe this season, and apparently sees the 26-year-old as an ideal replacement for either Michael Carrick or Marouane Fellaini.

The African star is in the final year of his current contract, which is said to include a release clause of £33 million (R594 million), and the English side is looking to activate it.
