The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their side to finish the month on a high. The Red Devils have enjoyed a successful window so far, with the signing of Alexis Sanchez exciting our resident Old Trafford regulars.
The Chilean moved to Old Trafford this week from Arsenal, and it’s fair to say that his arrival could well go down as one of the deals of the summer. Undoubtedly one of Europe’s best players, Sanchez is sure to have a big impact.
However, it doesn’t appear as though Man Utd fans are satisfied quite yet.
Over the last few days, reports via the Sun have suggested that the Red Devils are looking to bring in anoither central midfielder. High on their list of priorities, it is said, is Jean-Michael Seri of Nice.
A talented deep-lying midfielder, Seri – who is rated at £31.5m by Transfer Markt – would provide creativity, class and technique through the midfield – whilst also providing Jose Mourinho with an alternative to Nemanja Matic and Paul Pogba.
It’s fair to say that a move for Seri would go down well amongst Man Ud fans – with many taking to Twitter over the last day or so to reveal their true feelings about the potential deal. With fans describing it as a ‘masterstroke’ and ‘brilliant business’ – they’re clearly urging Jose Mourinho and co to get the deal done.
Take a look at a few responses below…
If we can get Seri for around 35-40 million, it would be brilliant business. With Carra retiring, it's crucial we plug gaps in our midfield. Matic, Seri can allow Pogba to play much further up in a free role w/o defensive duties & have Sanchez, Lukaku, Martial upfront. #MUFC

Really hope Mourinho & Woodward sign a midfielder in January in the form of SMS at Lazio, Seri at Nice or Weigl at BVB. #mufc

Jean Seri and Sergej Milinković-Savić are the type of midfield players we should be trying to get. Good to see us linked with them with Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini probably leaving in the summer. SMS would be my first choice. @ManUtd #GGMU #MUFC

am I the only one who thinks that instead of #Ozil we better get Moura and Seri in January? #Ozil might come fro free later anyway and we still have @juanmata8 and @JesseLingardto fill the position.#MUFC

I can't ask for more than Alexis in Jan but it will a master stroke if #MUFC sign Seri this month!
It will take him time to settle, so if we do it now, next season he will be ready from the start.

Although I’d prefer Wilshere or Vidal, if #mufc sign Seri this window we are way ahead of the game when it comes to recruitment.
Ed wants the summer off.
