Paris Saint-Germain are determined to ruin Barcelona’s quest for Nice star Jean Michael Seri, his representative Franklin Mala claims French giants Paris Saint-Germain wants to sign the Nice midfielder in order to piss off Barcelona.
Seri has been intensely connected with a €40million move to Barca, though a deal is yet to eventuate for the 26-year-old, who beforehand negated claims that he had concurred terms with the Spanish side.
What’s more, the vulnerability has apparently opened the entryway for Ligue 1 rivals PSG – who lured Neymar far from Barca in a world-record €222m move prior in August – as indicated by Mala.
“It was possible to reach an agreement as Barcelona and Nice were negotiating,” he 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.”
PSG and Barca have been at loggerheads during the transfer window. Barca were desperate to sign PSG midfielder Marco Verratti but the French capital club refused to do business. Instead, PSG raided Barca by activating Neymar’s buyout clause.
