Manchester United are one of a number of clubs chasing Nice midfielder Jean Michael Seri, according to Sky sources.

The in-demand Seri joined Nice from Portuguese side Pacos de Ferreira in 2015 and is believed to have a release clause of around £33m in his contract, which expires at the end of next season.

United's interest comes as they begin to plan for next season. They will be without Michael Carrick, who is retiring, while doubts remain over the future of Marouane Fellaini, who has six months to run on his deal.
