Future D-day for Barcelona man, as Manchester United links grow

Yerry Mina’s future should become clearer today with the central defender reportedly set for future talks with Barcelona.

AS reported yesterday that Manchester United had made an offer for the Colombia World Cup star and today those rumours have gathered momentum with another source linking Jose Mourinho’s men.

Mundo Deportivo cite Radio Montecarlo as their source for the claim that United are going all out to sign 23-year-old Mina, who has an official release clause at Barcelona of €100million.

Barcelona are reported to be holding a meeting with Mina’s representatives today regarding offers for the former Palmeiras man.

Liverpool were interested in the player, but Everton and Lyon are reported to have lodged offers for Mina, whilst Sky Sports say Wolves are also in the hunt for Mina, who could leave on loan.

Mina hinted earlier this month that he will leave Barcelona this summer after revealing his mental anguish at the club, after arriving from Brazil in January.

The commanding defender has struggled to get game time at Barca since his €11.8million January transfer from Palmeiras– in fact he played in just five La Liga matches last season and often didn’t even make the bench for manager Ernesto Valverde’s side.

“I want to play for a team where there is less pressure and where I can have minutes,” said Mina.

“I will always try to do my best for me, for my club and I hope that wherever I end up, whether it is at Barcelona or whether I have to leave, I will do it in the best way, but for the moment I am happy at Barcelona.”

The British press though are convinced Harry Maguire is the centre-back that Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho is hunting down.
