Manchester United could hijack Everton’s £27million move for Barcelona defender Yerry Mina, a report claims. Widespread reports on Thursday suggested that the Toffees were closing in on signing the Colombian World Cup star in a deal worth over €30m.
The commanding defender has struggled to get game time at Barca since his €11.8million January transfer from Palmeiras. He played in just five La Liga matches last season and often didn’t even make the bench for manager Ernesto Valverde’s side.
According to French media outlet RMC, Jose Mourinho is keen on a move for Mina and will try and launch a late bid to beat Everton to his signature. The Red Devils are apparently willing to match Everton’s £27m offer and meet Mina’s wage demands to get the deal over the line.
