Jean Michael Seri is close to becoming Barcelona's fourth signing of the summer. Sources close to the talks confirm the operation is at an advanced stage and that agreement is 90 percent in place. It will not be made official until after Seri plays for Nice in their Champions League qualifier against Napoli on Tuesday. He will sign a four-year deal and the transfer will cost 40 million euros.
The operation has been pushed through in a record time because Barça have spent months talking with the player's people and everything was under control. A few days ago, the club told the player they were upping their interest and would make Nice a formal offer. Seri has played his part and the good relationship between the two clubs has done the rest.
