Manchester United eye deal for Barcelona’s Yerry Mina
Manchester United are exploring the possibility of a deal for Barcelona centre-back Yerry Mina.
Should he leave he wants to join a Champions League club. Lyon have also expressed interest but fear Mina is holding on for United to make an offer.
United returned on Wednesday from their tour of the USA while Barcelona were in Dallas. However, a United delegation is expected to meet up with Barcelona officials in Spain on Thursday to go over the possible figures.
United may yet offload Marcos Rojo to Everton to help offset their spending, though talks on that move are still in the early stages, but many within the club don’t see Mina as being any better than the defenders they already have.
Everton are understood to have offered £26m for Mina and, while Barcelona officials have heard of United interest, they had not considered it to be serious.
He made just six appearances for Barcelona last season after joining for £11m in January.
