Barcelona & Jean Seri
Have Barcelona experienced a worse transfer window than the current one during the summer of 2017?
Neymar left the Camp Nou to join PSG, while it’s become obvious that Barcelona were wholly unprepared for that deal to transpire.
So far, Barcelona keep running into dead ends when it comes to future signings.
Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho seems destined to stay at Anfield this summer – even if Guillem Balague is right that Coutinho wants Barcelona to submit a fourth and final bid.
Elsewhere, Nice midfielder Jean Seri appeared to pull the plug on his possible Camp Nou move on Tuesday.
After Napoli dumped Nice out the Champions League, Seri told local media that was unlikely to be his last game for the Ligue 1 side.

Jean Seri social media revelation
Spanish radio station RAC1 have since announced a barely believable update on Barcelona’s Seri chase.
According to their understanding, Barcelona only began targeting the Nice star after fans touted his name on social media.
Why do Barcelona have a scouting team if they are influenced by social media updates on Instagram Facebook and Twitter?
RAC1: Barcelona only started looking at Jean-Michaël Seri after fans kept mentioning him on social media. Before then, he was not a target.

Barcelona urged to sign Theo Walcott
In the aftermath of the RAC1 report on Seri, some Arsenal fans have reacted.
